    Fist sized snails invade Terrebonne

    lol, a friend called me about this a month or so ago and I told him he needs to cut back on the wacky weed.

    SCHRIEVER -- With brooms, scrapers and paddles in hand, snail hunters took to the bayous and swamps off La. 20 Tuesday morning to combat a looming invasion of alien intruders....

    It also became quickly clear that the imported species were able to transfer the Angiostrongylus cantonensis (rat lungworm) parasite just like the native apple snail population (Pila). This parasite spends a part of its life cycle in apple snails and can infect humans when the snail isn't cooked long enough before consumption.
    Instead of becoming a food source they escaped, and became a serious pest, posing a real threat to the rice production and the environment.

    NO THANKS!!!

    Wow!
    It'd be cool to have one of those in my aquarium; they're bigger than some of the fish I have.

    Don't listen to him.

    If given the correct amount of time, the correct amount of barley pop, anything is edible my friend and will probably taste damn good.
