Yeah I didn't know whether to take that as a joke or not..i don't know your personality. But I would believe out of all the freaky things in nature there is most likely a snail as big as a bathtub...after being a mother of many snails I couldn't even imagine how much waste a snail the size of a bathtub must make....
