"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....

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.
