LOC includes all organisms listed above excpet for land snails

Guppies, goldfish, elodea, pond snails, ramshorn snails, redworms, and earthworms can also be obtained from local sources, such as pet stores. For organisms, such as the fish, this is a better option as it cuts down on transit-stress on the organisms. Many teachers prefer this method as they can obtain the organisms without waiting the 3-week order time.

Pillbugs and sowbugs can usually be collected locally as well, but it may be difficult finding both types of organisms.

*Land snails must be collected locally as they cannot be shipped across state lines. You may be able to obtain them from a locally-based biological supply house.
