Thats terrible Mike, lol. If you are in the US they are illegal, but heck I will still take one if you can smuggle it as a regular garden snail.

Where do you keep these? What size are they just now? I'd never really heard of them but I just googled them and good grief! That's a big snail!

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
