It's a chut chut!

Commonly known as the spicy snail dish in most seafood eateries, these small snails are usually boiled and eaten by biting off the tip of the shell and sucking out the flesh.

But of course, the cooked version and live animal are miles apart.

Stomper Lau Lup spotted this cute critter on Saturday (Oct 15) while strolling around Pasir Ris.

According to WildSingapore, this snail can be found in our mangroves, on tree trunks and on the mud near trees. This perfectly explains why it was spotted in Pasir Ris!

"The live animal with its bright red and black body seems to suggest that it is poisonous," said Lau Lup.

Side note, isn't the video of this little guy crawling just calming?
