I can't find any reference to it except in conjunction with Takeshi Yamada's sideshow. That makes me suspicious.

Remember also that snails are pseudopodia. Those podia look anything but pseudo.

Wow that looks very odd!
I have never seen anything like that before and have no Idea about its validity...

 at first glance it reminded me of a turtle foot but then I looked closer... very odd indeed!

the chupacabra is a 'legendary' animal from Mexico and south America. Legendary as in Bigfoot and Yeti's.

Lol - a snail with claws, and people are asking it it's real!   [:D]
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!

i don't think that it can get any more fake, that or its one really mutated snail.  Must live next to a nuclear waste site or something.
