The cases of something weird popping out of the human body are seemingly getting common these days. We have already covered some creepy stories from the likes of a girlfriend finding something on her boyfriend's neck and popping out of blackheads.
But, no one can still imagine of a mollusk living inside a human being. However, the shocking story of this little boy proved it well.
A minor cut on the right leg of seven-year-old Paul made his mother Rachael Franklin doubtful. The reason behind the worry was the swelling around it.
The doctor took it lightly as nothing wrong was visible. He just prescribed some antibiotics and advised them to not to touch that area.
The wound turned black with the passing days and also got filled with puss. This lead Rachael to go against the doctor's advice to drain the filler out.
A solid small piece came out of the wound and it was hard to guess what it was!
Yes, the hard thing was an alive snail!
Rachael gave a very obvious reaction- "Paul. This is a snail. It's a freaking snail!"
Biologist Dan Riskin says that Littorina Scutulata snails can survive in various temperatures and salt levels. The body of Paul provided snail with that ideal atmosphere!
