Hawaii: A Word About the Snails

Everything in Hawaii is lush and majestic...except for the terrifying and enormous snails.
This is one of the smaller specimens we saw, next to a quarter for perspective. We ran across a shell easily twice as large as this behind a bush in the yard.

I tried to research the history of these giants, but only got to "invasive African species" before getting too grossed out by photos.

I woke up to a few of these while camping on The North Shore of Oahu....they're quite disgusting!
