Giant African Land Snail

Achatina fulica

Habitat:

Home garden

Notes:

They are pests to gardens and maybe do not have natural enemies in Sulawesi. I made a close-up video to show how they feed on leaf. I always wonder how these soft creatures eat hard leaves? The video shows that they do it easily (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vERrdOiA...)

Wonderful video, but for once I would not want to introduce them to my garden!
