Shocking Giant African Snail Invaders

They’re big, slimy and they’ve invaded different zones inhabited by people. These guys just don’t know when to stop, and yes we are talking about huge snails which have invaded the outskirts of Miami-Dade County. So far, the people who have been working hard to fight the invasion, have collected thousands of snails off the streets of Miami, and they still have thousands to go. Giant African Snails are known as “one of the most damaging land snails in the world”, they are potential carriers of parasites which cause meningitis in humans.

These odd looking creatures can reach impressive sizes, as shown in the pictures below, and what’s even worse, is the fact that these snails are hermaphrodites, that means that they have both male and female reproductive organs. These slimy little creatures have been known to typically lay 1,200 eggs a year. Have a look below at just how big these giant creatures get, and if you see one in your back yard, try not to be too frightened.
