Too long have humans, particularly those voracious French humans, feasted on snails, a veritable mollusk genocide, if you will.
Now, the snails are fighting back!
Ok, so, these are sea snails, not land snails like those ingested in fine restaurants. But, this could be an evolutionary trait that land snails will also develop at some point, one day, perhaps, when they get fed up with the humiliation of adorning fine china swimming in garlic butter.
Personally, this scares the hell out of me!
