First, I couldn't believe that it could become that big... But ok, I think you picked this information from a record website or something like that?

WOW! Nice find, that is amazing!

Do think the snail was genetically modified or bred selectively to become such a huge snail?!?

That's cool! And kinda scary. Don't really ever want to see one, though I suppose I wouldn't have to be afraid of outrunning it.

That's awesome! and gross at the same time. I've never been one to enjoy slow animals as pets (like tortoise's. Seriously, who pays 200 bucks for a freakin tortoise?!), but if Petsmart had these things I think that would change! Not much you could do with it, but it'd be pretty exotic. and harmless, i hope.. lol. I would name it Gary....

Still, it's a great find all the same. How I hate the mucus snails leave behind. ><

eww that's freaky but cool. Funny how we get scared of snails even though they're massive but they're still smaller than us by heaps lol.
