With eyes popping right out of their heads, snails (and slugs) could be the worst pests ever.

I do not fear them but thinking about the slime and all just makes me feel yuck!

But thanks to science fiction for putting a touch of awesomeness and cuteness into them.

They turned out adorable and could be good to keep as pets.

Here are some not-so-slimy snails and slugs in science fiction you need to love right now.
