Curiosity (almost) killed the Oto.


I was going to write some funny commentary to go along with this picture, but I'm not funny, and a picture is worth a thousand words:





Yes, ladies and gentleman, that is indeed an Oto that has stuck its head inside of a snail, which then decided to close its operculum, trapping the Oto in a rather embarrassing situation.

I had to free him using tweezers, he seems to be fine, but the snail...not so much.

I think Confucius said it best, " Putting your head inside of a snail is but pure foolishness, I mean, what the hell, come on people, you don't even need my advice for this one".

Nice catch! I'm glad you were able to free the oto. Snails are a dime a dozen anyway.

That is absolutely hilarious. I'm glad you decided to snap a picture before rescuing him.
