Giant Snails From Space Take Over Miami!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooScary!Insects

Snails

Giant African Snails have sprung up in Miami.

According to the Miami Herald, the snails "are considered one of the most damaging land snails in the world.":

They eat at least 500 different types of plants, lay about 1,200 eggs a year, and can carry a strain of non-fatal meningitis. Prolific breeders, they contain both female and male reproductive organs and live as long as nine years.

They can be particularly devastating to agricultural areas and ecosystems and result in trade bans. Hailing from Eastern Africa, the snails are only allowed into the United States with special permits and for scientific research.

The snails can grow up to ten-inches long and four-inches wide.

Gross.

The snails can eat through stucco and plaster, so people aren’t even safe in their homes!

Run for your lives!

But seriously, if U live in Miami, report any “suspicious snail” sightings to Miami Agriculture Officials.

Snails Race For Their Lives!!

Filed under: Insects

This is soooo mean!!!

Snails in France better run…and run fast!

Most snails in The World Snail Racing Championships don't have a chance of survival. The winner that ends up on the winner's podium gets his (or her) life spared. As for the rest of the snails, though, they end up in cooking pot for escargot!

Can't they all just be winners?? So cruel!

Yummy Snails For GaGa In Paris!

Filed under: Lady GaGa

We wouldn't expect any less from her! Gotta try the cultural cuisine!

Lady GaGa recently enjoyed some authentic French cuisine while visiting the Parisian restaurant Chez Andre during her time in the City of Lights, when she ordered escargot - along with chicken and french fries!

But she didn't indulge completely! She did not order dessert or alcohol, and drank only water.

A staffer reveals that the pop star arrived with three bodyguards, but displayed absolutely no diva behavior during her meal, and instead was very sweet! After dining, she kissed the manager good-bye and left a "very, very generous tip."

That's our gurl!

Yum.
