Florida county under quarantine after return of invasive African land snail

Quarantine is a word we are too familiar with especially over these past couple years with this pandemic. But in a town in Florida there are quarantining for a different reason not because of a covid 19 outbreak but because of a snail.
Believe it, the African land snail has returned and they pose some serious health concerns for humans because they carry the parasite rat lungworm, which is known to cause meningitis in humans.

So The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services ordered the County to quarantine after the snails were found in the area.
According to a report from CNN, the snails can produce up to 2,500 eggs per year, making the population difficult to control. And as for what they eat the snails feed on more than 500 different kinds of plants  and they also eat paint and stucco off houses as a source of calcium.
A snails have shutdown a whole county. Wow!

Walt Disney Imagineering Executive Creative Producer. “Like the musical city that inspired this attraction, Tiana’s second act is about a community working in harmony to achieve something extraordinary. She reminds us of an immutable truth we can all relate to: ‘if you do your best each and every day, good things are sure to come your way.’ And that’s a melody we can all sing along to!”
