Yet another reason not to eat snail or worms..

snail

You could get infected by swallowing bits of animals that carry the parasite larvae -- just like rats do! So don't eat undercooked or raw snails, slugs, land crabs, shrimp, or frogs. In fact, crazy idea here, maybe skip the escargot entirely if you're in an area with recently reported infections.

What does it do to humans?

Once larvae enter the human bloodstream, they head to the central nervous system.

From little snail; collectively an entire story came up, here are some of the highlight:

Snails could grow wings, some figured out how to undo the wiring, and some think the snail could be eaten as they do in France! 

Thank you it was amusing to read you all!
