This bizarre apple snail looks like an alien as it tries to eat off glass. 

Singalita Dalhoeven filmed her new insect pet at home in Boekelo, The Netherlands, as its feelers moved all over the glass.

Singalita said: “Apple snails are unusual because they have both a gill and a lung. 

“The mantle cavity is divided in order to separate the two types of respiratory structures.

“This adaptation allows these snails to be amphibious.”
