Now, snails aren’t exactly the cuddliest chaps. They’re slimy, egregious, a bit freakish, and they possess all those … folds and stuff.

These particular snails are not picky eaters at all, thereby there’s no shortage of plants for them to locate in order to gain subsistence.

The molluscs are however merciless when it comes to property. These monolithic creatures will go so far as to eating the stucco of a home if they are denied access the plants that they wish to deplete.
