It was an easy find though, the delivery truck said "S Cargo" on the side.

Hard to tell with the snail in the way.

Oh, they seized the fark out of that cocaine. You didn't read about it because in broad terms it was just a shift in the supply chain.

Thank you, border agents. History could have repeated itself, if it wasn't for you.

Of the options listed, the snail was a only threat to the nation.

More than 2,800 cases of the disease have been reported across 30 countries, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In most cases, infected people have mild symptoms, like headaches, a stiff neck, and nausea - or no symptoms at all.

Oh wow! Just 0.00004% of the world's population and sometimes no or mild symptoms?! Time to horf down snails to own the libs. You can't tell me to stop!

I volunteer at a state park. I perform aquatic nuisance species inspections and boat docks and other men movable objects. Mud snails, invasive bottom feeders, and Asian water plants are probably the most invasive species I have to deal with. It's amazing How in unchecked species can destroy an ecosystem.  Look at Lake Powell and the great Lakes for examples.

Walk for your lives!

On a serious note, good on them for keeping invasive species out.

But they're also known to carry a parasite with a rather menacing name: rat lungworm.

The perfect name for a parasite that infects snails and causes brain and spinal chord disease.

18 giant snails?!

That's like 40 giant snails in cop math!

Giant immigrants with cocaine filled snails.

I have known of someone riding an elephant over the Rio Grande into the US, but biggest animal caught at a crossing near me was tiger cubs and baby gorilla.. Went straight to the Brownsville zoo, got mad at father for not bringing them to the house first but policy and procedures...whatever

Being that giant snails are a potentially invasive species that could inflict untold devastation on the environment, it looks like our border agents finally nailed something worthwhile.

My husband wants to raise these giant snails on his farm. Apparently they're delicious.
