Succinea (amber snails) are common hosts for parasitic flatworms, known as leucochloridium paradoxum, according to a new study in 2013 and published in the Journal of Zoology.

The study noted that “[t]he infected the snails with pulsating broodsacs behaved differently from their apparently non‐infected counterparts,” adding that they “have moved farther, is positioned themselves to be more exposed and better-lit place, is higher up in the trees.”

Biology Tomasz Wesołowski, who described the leucochloridium paradoxum in 2013, the research also noted that infected snails were able to move three times as fast as normal.

They flash in various colors to imitate the larvae to hungry birds, who then eat him. The process starts all over again, as in the birds’ intestinal tract, provides a space for the flatworm to reproduce it, and then run to another unsuspecting host.

It is remarkable that they are able to survive the event, because of their regenerating abilities. L. paradoxum is mainly in the eyestalk of a snail, it is a part of the bird, as it most closely resembles a larva, according to the New York Post.
