Does anyone know the name of this parasite or the snail that carries 
it ? A fellow from Australia told me that there were warnings about
it recently on TV:

>|yes, the toad are a danger... but just this week-end they found out
>|that some snail are now poisonous because they eat rats dropping that
>|carry a deadly disease that affect toddler by breeding "worms" in
>|their spine... 
|it a "parasitic worm larvae" that once ingested, develops
|and breed on the spine and create severe desorder that
|leads to a sure a fatal death... 
|The snail is one of this very translucide yellow-ish type
|the size of a medium size button... therefore very attractive
|to toddlers...
