How is Russia using giant snails to monitor air pollution?

    A waterworks company in Russia has decided to use six Achatina snails (Giant African snails), which have lungs and breathe like humans, to monitor the pollution released from a sewage incinerator that is notably one of the biggest treatment facilities in the country. The snails, fitted with heart monitors and motion sensors, would be used to breathe in the plant’s smoke. The gathered readings would then be compared to a control group to determine the pollution levels in the air.
