Giant African Land Snails have become one of the U.S.’s most persistent invasive species. They aren’t only causing California harm, but Florida as well.
The maleficent mollusks, known as GALS for short, made headlines this past Monday when it was released that 67 of them were collected at Los Angeles International Airport over a one-month period.
There does seem to be a more local problem however. These destructive snails are very present in Florida’s own Miami-Dade County.
