A CBS station in Dallas reports of a new invasive species in my state. Now, I work with potentially invasive species, so I don’t want to make light of the biological damage that could be done here, but... this is the invasive species:

The report calls it a giant African land snail, which could be any of several species.

The story concludes:

Unfortunately the snail discovered in the Houston homeowner’s backyard woman’s backyard got away before it could be caught.

Got away? A snail got away. A snail... got away? A snail?!

How does a snail get away? You had one job!

Are you sure this isn’t a publicity stunt for this summer movie?
