The Same Snail Can Celebrate Mother's Day and Father's Day?

Straight Outta Wikipedia:

'Many taxonomic groups of animals (mostly invertebrates) do not have separate sexes. In these groups, hermaphroditism is a normal condition, enabling a form of sexual reproduction in which either partner can act as the "female" or "male".'

Since none can escape their horny shell.
You might even call it courtship hell.
