Not Cute: Giant African Land Snails

Giant African Land Snails Return To South Florida. Pets run amok! In 1966 these things got established there and it took 10 years and $1,000,000 to eradicate them! A fertilized snail can have 1200 kids!


This picture links to the blog from which it was ripped.

In fact, the story reads like a B-grade Si-Fi movie!

There is a large group of enthusiasts who keep them as pets. I am not sure why. I once had a pet clam which would be only slightly less interesting. But more attractive, IMO.

    Small snails are cool! Large snails are freaky, IMO.
