I have seen small snails eat *very* fresh eggs before the chorion gets a
chance to harden up. Neither small pond snails nor small ramshorns seem to
bother most killy eggs after they harden for a day. I don't trust the larger
grown ones though. Malaysian Trumpet Snails (MTS) are an exception. I think
they can and will eat any eggs they can find. That's been my experience,

"DEMOCRACY" is two wolves and a lamb voting on lunch.
"LIBERTY" is a well-armed lamb denying enforcement of the vote.
