Snails as large as rats have invaded parts of Florida, and despite their appearance - these things are capable of some real damage!

Their official name is Giant African land snails, and more than 117,000 have been found since late 2011 - with over a thousand more found each week!

And unlike another problem Florida had in the past - you can't fix this one with a recount!

Here's what one concerned resident said:

Shelled Animals Are Dissolving In The Ocean Thanks To Global Warming! BOO!

Filed under: Sad SadHealthSea Creatures

As humans continue to pour carbon dioxide into the ozone, the ocean is paying a price.

And it's not just the polar ice caps that are feeling the pain — snails, mollusks, and corals are crippling too.

The pH level of the ocean is steadily becoming more acidic, at a rate of 0.1 percent per century.

This is the highest it has been in over 300 MILLION years!

The pteropod marine snail is dissolving as we speak, as the ocean's supply of aragonite wears thin in the Anarctic.

These snails use aragonite to create their shells. CO2 dissolves in water, forming carbonic acid which is breaking down all the argonite.

The same will happen to corals and mollusks; they use carbonate but this compound is disappearing too.

While aragonite is plentiful in most of the ocean, there are areas where it is completely gone!

Poor snails! We HAVE to lower our carbon dioxide emissions!!!!

RIGHT NOW!!!!

Whoopi Goldberg really likes her big hats.

And she especially seems to like the one she wore last night while attending The Face Of Tisch Gala benefiting The Tisch School Of The Arts in NYC.

In fact, Miz Goldberg wore the same hat just last week while attending the premiere of Sister Act in Germany.

And on the brim of the hat is nothing else but a snail pin.

…Random.

As for last night, Whoopi finished the look with a scarf, oversized black coat, black pants, and black shoes.

What do U think of Whoopi's look?
