Giant snails invade Peru

Giant snails were found in the Ancash region of Peru. Officials don’t know how or why they are there.

Giant snails like these are potentially extremely toxic. Officials have told residents to kill them with salt water and then call in officials to dispose of the remains.

African giant snails are among the world’s most dangerous animals. They spread bacteria and parasites through their eating habits.

Some think heavy rains and flooding brought in the snails, but authorities are also investigating if humans are the cause.
