One Beautiful Morning, a woman named Laura Age 68 was working in her garden. That is when she saw an unusual object floating in the water. Curious as to what the object was, the woman nearing the ditch carefully picked up the thing out of the water and started examining it closely. But, that’s when her husband saw his wife holding some strange thing and immediately snatched it out of her hand. Laura and her husband have always been fond of nature. They have both worked with wildlife as a manager. Having said that, the couple has a background of being micro-biologist as well. They have witnessed many natural phenomena in their course of experience with the wildlife but have saw something as such…
Tom Knew What It Was
Despite Laura’s experience, she couldn’t figure out this strange water object. But her husband seemed to know the thing. Laura and her husband loves to do gardening and were usually to be in their garden. They have always seen different things floating in the water near their garden, unlike this yellowish object which caught their attention. In an interview, she said ‘But this creature caught my attention immediately due to its unusual color’ ‘I took the clog out of the water and showed my husband’.
What Happened Next?
The anchor then asked ‘what happened next?’ My husband screamed out loud just after giving it a close look. He recognized the thing and snatched it out of my hands ,dropping it to the ground. He then took out his gloves from his pockets and asked me to move aside from the clog. I was in shock. Undoubtedly, it was vicious. My husband then asked me to immediately go wash my hands.
Investigation Time ?
Laura steadily ran to her house and washed her hands for approximately 15 mins. When she got back, the object along with her husband were no where insight. She soon started searching around hurriedly and located her husband in their old barn with the nugget. Her husband sensing his wife’s presence informed her that he was investigating the nugget. The couple was already very curious about the object. Moreover, her husband’s research was indicating that he has some answers as to what the nugget is.
She went a bit closer and stood near the door of the barn. She then saw her husband standing with his back to her. He was bent over his work table with a large plastic container which was white, That is when he came across something fascinating and gave a call to his wife to come over. Laura slowly walked to the place and saw the lump sitting in the container. It was in a deep layer of water. Precisely to her husband’s finding, it wasn’t just any normal thing.
What are Mollusk?
The lump which was in front of her eyes placed in the container had a name. In Latin, it is called ‘Pectinatella Magnifica’. She then asked ‘What is it darling?’. When she looked at her husband waiting for an answer. Her eyes fell on his hands and arms, which were full of red bumps. Tom then quickly started to apply the cream onto his arms and hands all the way explaining. ‘This a mollusk. It can be very occasionally seen areas as such. It can look all innocent plus harmless, however, do not get fooled by its appearance.
What have they caused?
He then went on with saying that these creatures are usually a lot smaller. Wherein, cannot be seen in these areas. They can cause a lot of irritation. Pointing at his hands. Not only that, they will never come alone. They come with their group and do immense damage to the area.
A pack of Creatures.
Just when Tom uttered these words. The couple heard a loud noise coming directly from their neighbor’s place, which was fifty yards away. Their neighbor a 35-year-old female when witnessed the harm done by the beast. Tom went on by saying ‘These creatures don’t come alone; in addition, they could cause a serious typical damage to the area’. The couple then ran outside to witness the destruction done.
Is it even real?
While viewing the scene in front of her eyes, Laura could relate to everything that Tom had just spoken about. The river was full of moss creatures. Even so, the watercolor was golden and the animals were sitting by the edge of the steam. Last but not the least, their garden was getting covered and most of the plants already got destroyed.
Now the couple had to do something rapidly.
They did it?
Tom and Laura have been working for years in nature. Despite, being aware of the fact, that nature is unpredictable, they always have worked quickly. Particularly, in situations like these. So they did just that!
Tom got into action and was immediately seen taking his tiny digging machine and placing a huge tree in the stream. It was indeed a clever move; however, it did not solve the issue. Laura was busy calming down the neighbor. Tom has already started to see the mollusk coming together near the log.
Tom was resourceful, he starts to dig deep with moving his machine forward. By digging deep down and making a ditch he made a connection from the end of this ditch channel with the stream. This formed a water lock, making the tree truck act as a dam, sending water and creatures into the ditch. Next, something splendid took place.
For the time being, Laura was gone to look for some help. Tom was working with his canal to make a place for the mollusks. Nevertheless, they could not stay there forever. Tom had made a forty meters long ditch and all the mollusks were in that place.
They went home.
Tom then put a closing point to the stream. Now the interesting question is did they get rid of the creatures?
Luckily, Tom’s wife got help. Being a biologist, she knew many organizations that deal with natural disasters. And they were locally present too. Lauca came with four trucks . The truck then pulled some huge tanks enough for transportation of the mollusks. Along with, a hundred volunteers they placed all the water pocket mollusks from the hole in the containers.
A happy ending for both the couple and mollusks as they got to transfer back to their original area.
It remains a mystery, how the creatures got to Laura and Tom. However, the couple real heroes. Later, the municipality converted its barn into a research lab. So they can investigate nature better. Especially, since they have bought nature into a safe zone!
