What an awful experience.

I was again re-decorating my sorority tank and noticed that my mystery snail Heidi was still in the same place as she was last week, so I picked her up to see if she recoiled and to my utter shock she slipped out and in to the tank along with one heck of a smell, not in all my life have taken a whiff of anything so HORRIFIC in all my life so I swiftly opened my windows and vacated the room only to return to a much milder smell, which as we speak is still haunting me. All I can say is thankfully I wasn't brave enough to stick my nose next to her because I don't think I would be writing this right now lol.

Same thing happened to me with one of my snails. The smell is absolutely dreadful! O.o

I'm sorry about Heidi though.
