"Poor shooting is commonplaceone-third of all love darts either fail to penetrate the skin or they miss the target completely," Chase said.
Being hit with a love dart may sound cute and comical, but for the recipient there may be costs. Love darts are the equivalent of being stabbed with a hypodermic needle. Evidence from mating trials conducted in the Chase lab indicates snails try to avoid being hit with love darts. Copulating snails commonly are seen jostling, in an attempt to hit but not be hit.
