Attack of the Killer Snails!

I am so freaked out about these! Giant Snails Seized From Schools. The size of a person's hand. A hand! Hand sized snails! Am I the only one feeling the hysteria?

"They are concerned the snails, about the size of a person's hand, could be transported to states with warmer climates, where they can rapidly reproduce and destroy plants." Um, and my sanity?

"In 1966, a Miami boy smuggled three Giant African Land Snails into the country. His grandmother eventually released them into a garden, and in seven years there were more than 18,000 of them. The eradication program took 10 years, according to the USDA." This is a horror movie waiting to happen.
