How long these animals live ?

The sellers claim that they keep some nutritious supplements inside the plastic containers. This nutritious supplements keep the animals alive for several weeks or months. This is 100% false. Only food makes no animal live for a long. Without fresh oxygen, water, air no animals can survive for a long. Actually, no access to air and limited space kills these animals quite quickly.

Unfortunately, buying or selling these poor creatures as keychains is not banned in China. These activities are legal. I think it should be banned.
