0006352: Moon snail men can't punch or see
Because moon snails have underdefined bodies, moon snail men are blind, and unable to take any action requiring a brain.

Proposed solution: copy [body] tag from normal snails.
Create a moon snail man in arena
Take control of it
If you're interested in more anatomically correct snails & slugs, there's a corrected version of the gastropod body plan on the forums at http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=99300.msg4382906#msg4382906 [^] /shamelessplug

In my game the one time I encountered one as an adventurer it was flashing as if wounded even though nothing was damaged. Possibly because it misses parts that it needs to function?
