I've never lived in Arizona, so I couldn't tell you if you even have them in the wild, but around here, we collect them in a simple way. Take a couple cabbage leaves and put them around the yard in flower beds, gardens, under bushes, etc. Anywhere where snails might be. The slugs and snails will come to the cabbage and as long as you keep it supplied there seems to be a never ending volume of them.

Like the other reply mentions, you could nix the item all together, no big deal. The suggestion of raising aquatic snails is a good one, though. Aquatic snails will be eaten just as readily by the turtles, and they are very easy to grow if you've got a spare tank laying around. I don't know of any place that sells slugs and snails, though.
