The girl over at "This just in" blog, was talking about her aquarium aliens and it made me think of my own aquarium aliens. Yes they really are aliens or at least I believe that is what they are.
I have this aquarium in my greenhouse which has mostly green slime in it at the moment but it also has aliens. I don't know where they came from or how they got in there so I can only assume they were planted by the mother ship on a recent trip to earth. It is a freshwater aquarium that we used to keep water plants in for the winter but we gave up on doing that. Usually our winters are warm enough that some of our water plants will make it through and if they don't, we can always get more at the pet store.
The aliens though are disguised as snails but they don't look like any fresh water snail I have ever seen. They are have long pointed shells similar to some saltwater snails I have seen. But here is why I think they are aliens. From time to time, they line up in parallel lines, facing up and I know what they are doing. They are facing the mother ship and getting ready to be picked up and taken back to the snail planet. Shortly after they do the lineup thing, they all disappear and I know they have gone back. Then without warning, they are re spawned and go through the same process.
Now that I think about it lots of snails go through this same process. Could it bet that all snails are aliens? Think about that then next time you order snails in your favorite restaurant. You just may be planting alien seeds in your belly. And if you saw the movie aliens, you know where that leads. As for me I am not taking any chances. Snails are now on my do not eat list.
Have a great day and Bon Appetit.
