  5. What a revolting "pet". Presumably you can't catch schistosomiasis from them? I can understand lizards, snakes, even tarantulas, but not this.

  7. Adorable! And this post is exactly why I am glad Andy is back from vacay. It can't all be homophobes and haters and hot dudes. I love these animals posts too. You can just hear the snail going "Ahhhhh". Made my morning!

  9. that was cute in that oddball way which is noice

    dunno if i could have the guts to do it myself, the sensation of having a big snail body on your skin might be to strange to handle

  11. St. Theresa, you can catch diseases from 'mainstream' pets too. Toxoplasmosis comes to mind.

  12. these are a very invasive species and in Florida they have become a big problem. They are also dangerous to handle.

  13. How do they taste?

  14. Tap water is a lot better for a snail than salt water would be! Jus' sayin'...

  15. Like a little kitty-cat, it seems to be really enjoying itself, which always moves me with the animal world…

  18. For what I understand the species constitutes a serious pest threat. But it's already in the U.S.A so ENJOY.

  19. Achatina Achatina is an invasive species in the US. They are tasty if prepared properly and served in a pepper soup with rice and dried fish. They die pretty easily if you don't know what you are doing, so be careful and don't bring them to the US.
