"Florida has a new problem: Giant African land snails. The snails, which can grow as large as rats, were first discovered in South Florida by a homeowner in 2011....

..... the snails eat over 500 species of plants, or "pretty much anything that's in their path and green," as well as stucco and plaster.

They're edible. So, even if they don't like beer, they go well with it!

I'm not sure I'd want to be dining on a creature who's been eating the siding off neighborhood houses.

Maybe this is weird, but I think this is a beautiful snail, destructive maybe but beautiful.

I thought that's not big, then I googled it. OMG, they're really huge. I don't know how to post this picture, but check out this link; the one on the bottom is in someone's hand eating a piece of green apple.
