Interesting thing I learnt.

Looking from directly above, almost all snail shells twist in a clockwise direction (Although there are rare individuals and some species that go anti-clockwise). This has a lot to do with snail mating, if the shells don't twist in the same direction, then it is almost impossible for the snails to mate. Natural selection then kicks in, hence why clockwise twisting shells is the most prevalent.
Meh!

That's why left handers are prohibited to learn Vedas.

What about the snails that over time , ( I won't use the evolved word ) .
Over time they grew their spirals on the other side , so the snakes that eat em can't. Eat them.
I like snails.
