This isn't considered a harmful snail, it will only become a problem if there's sufficient food to sustain a large population. Either way, it's unlikely you will impact the population by squashing...

Yeah the link is for a full screen playback, but it defaults to 480p most of the time... If your computer/bandwidth allows it, see it in HD 720 or 1080!
