The Leucochloridium Paradoxum is a parasite that has killed thousands of snails since it started. Leucochloridium Paradoxum starts out as a larva that gets eating by the snail. Then in the snails stomach grows and forms tubes that will invade the eyes, choosing the left eye over the right. When the parasite take the eyes it makes the snail move to the top of a tree or plant for a bird to come along and eats the snail. THE. THE PARASITE LIVES IN THE BIRD!!!!!!!!! Though it doesn't take over the bird. Good for the bird.......
