Damn stupid idea to export from Africa.

Can get a home grown export from USA to Africa via pest control authorities in Florida where several Kg turn up each day. Apparently the Florida ones are bigger than the African ones as well as they have less hangers on, & far less predators (hence more numerous). Biggest Florida giant snail was the size of a coconut.

May also be able to get Florida escargot business going to other parts of USA but need to be food prepared rather than live @ the time as they spread & breed PDQ.

Have a nice day: Ag
