Snail Eggs

I posted this on a thread lower, but I think it was too dated for anyone to see. Anyway, I was at a very reputable Italian restaurant a few weeks ago and ordered the snail appetizer that I've ordered many times before. However, this time as I bit into my fifth snail I noticed something odd.

There was a distinctive crunch.

I immediately spit the snail out and inspected it. Apparently I had just bitten into a pregnant snail. There were about 8-10 EGGS (like chicken eggs, but much smaller) inside. It was pretty nasty.

Anyway, has anyone heard of this before. Has it happened to you? Is it common? I'd never heard of it before so any insight would be much appreciated.
