(Finally a bit of humour in this gallery... :)

The Yrzyrri, or Xyzzyzzian chicken snail, is a strange creature mentioned in passing in a story 'Galaksi tulessa' (=Galaxy on fire) on the Finnish collaborative writing site Tarinamylly. The yrzyrri was obviously invented only as a part of a play on a Finnish saying, but the idea of chicken-snail hybrid was just too good to pass up on.

Hilarious and disgusting...one of the most bizarre creatures I have yet to encounter. Let's see KFC offer a bucket of these! LOL

Reminds me of the spawn-of-Hades mascot that would result if McDonald's were ever to sell escargot. 1
