Oblong Yellow Land Snail Shells
In the pulmonate marsh snail, Succinea putris, there is a parasitic flatworm, Leucochloridium paradoxum, which prevents the snail from retracting its enlarged and parasitized eye stalk; this makes the snail much more likely to be noticed and eaten by a bird, the final host of the flatworm.
Humans also pose great dangers to snails in the wild. Pollution and habitat destruction have caused the extinction of a considerable number of snail species in recent year.
