Giant African Land Snail

Lissachatina fulica

Description:

Snail so obviously some sort of Gastropod it was about 5 inches long and only about a inch or so wide. It was trying to get off the road towards some leaf litter which I assume might be it's lunch. It's got a nice orange and red shell which is quite noticeable.

Habitat:

Grassy area in our field or possibly on the trees? I haven't seen one this color before.

Notes:

I put other as they are not a arthropod and their was no mollusc option

I can't use the ID species button on my computer for some reason but if anyone could ID using the species below that would be great!
