I have shells of these that I picked up in Mozambique, years ago. The animals were long gone and deceased, and the shells remained behind as prizes for those who love natural relics.

To see them here in Florida is disturbing because Florida has more invasive species than any other local in the world. It's criminal what crapitalism and people's selfishness has done to this land!

All the introduced species cause so many problems, but this big snail sure is a beauty.
