LOL I noticed very small ones here and there around the outside of my lania and the freaking little frogs inside the lania after the rains. How they get in, I have no idea. Some little frogs end up swimming in the pool. Bast@#ds. Never had them before until this past fall. :hammerhead:

The question the Link doesn't answer is, are the Snails eatable???

Wow Fla gets hit with all the invasive stuff!! That thing was nasty!!
And Ric, I believe they said it had a worm inside that causes meningitis, so no it's not eatable.

Throw them on the grill and that worm gets cooked real well.

You would be surprised at what People native to my birth place eat. Try Spider and half incubated eggs that are boiled with a half grown embryo just to name a few.

Your link said the snails could cause illness if they are UNDER COOKED. So look for snail on the Chinese and Seafood Buffets at Early Bird Special Restaurants Next time you are gorging yourself.
