Snail Videos
« on: November 02, 2010, 02:30:41 AM »
Found some interesting videos of snails. Yep. Snails. Cone snails actually.

Forget about your garden variety snail, these things are sinister, creepy, and deadly.

http://www.theconesnail.com/videos

Some of those videos are sure to creep you out.

One variety has enough venom in it to kill 15 people in 1 sting. Unsurprisingly, it's from Australia.

You're welcome.
Like Stephen said, like Snakes, only much slower, which only makes it worse.  :'(

I'm so glad I live in the good ol' NorthWest USA where I can walk the beach without getting nailed by venomous critters.
*shiver*
