Quote: "A bizarre video shows millions of snails taking over a popular beach in St. Petersburg Florida. The entire length of the beach is covered in what looks like black rocks, but are in fact cerith snails. The filmer wrote online: 'I grew up in Florida and have spent most of my life on the water. I have never seen or heard of this happening before.' The video only shows about one-quarter of the total invasion of snails.  Cerith snails don't often come onto land. They are usually found on sandy bottoms, flat reefs, or coral rock in warm and temperate areas."
