And I thought I had a problem with deer destroying my garden. Giant African snails have been showing up in Australia and they’re using any means possible to get rid of them. When I say giant – we’re talking snails that can grow up to a foot long. Generally they’re the size of a human fist. They have a brown shell with dark brown stripes.
Size is not the problem – it’s their appetite. Giant African snails will eat almost anything. They’re known to devour more than 500 types of plants including vegetables, fruits and trees.
