After crayfish, another alien species invaded China. This is really not edible!

 After crayfish, another alien species invaded China. This is really not edible!

But this invasive alien species really cant eat...

This invasive alien species is the African snail.

African snail, also known as Dongfeng snail by the people of Guangdong, is also called brown cloud agate snail. It belongs to the genus agate snail of agate snail family. It does occur in Africa. To be more precise, it is East Africa.

How big is it? The shell length of adults is about seven or eight centimeters, and the maximum is more than twenty centimeters!!!

What is the level of 20 centimeters? True and honest take out bigger than you...

The shell of African snail is thicker in texture. The threads are generally about six or seven layers. The surface of the shell is white or yellow. There are brown longitudinal stripes or moires perpendicular to the threads on the shell.

Although they may look ordinary and even have exotic skeletons that older brothers may think are a little cute, African snails are one of the worlds top 100 invasive alien species.

As an invasive alien species, the African snail has two characteristics: it can eat and it can produce...

Can: a litter of eggs at least fifty, good condition more than five hundred no problem!

Five or six litters can be produced in a year. How many litters can be produced in the next year? Once hatched, its the scene of intimidation...

In fact, African snails are not meant to be eaten. They are even delicious when they are well cooked. After all, during World War II, African snails were one of the stockpiles of food for the U.S. Army, and the raw materials of French snails in many restaurants were African snails.

But dont catch snails in the wild to eat at home!!!

Dont touch!!!

Because wild African snails are carriers of many pathogens.

African snail is the intermediate host of Angiostrongylus cantonensis. The natural infection rate of Angiostrongylus cantonensis is very high, up to 60% in some cases. The density of the infected snail is also very high, and there are thousands of worms in some cases. It is also reported that under experimental conditions, African snails can infect Angiostrongylus cantonensis by breaking their skin!!! By eating or contacting, Angiostrongylus cantonensis may enter the human body and parasitize in the central nervous system or cerebrospinal fluid, causing fatal meningitis.

So remember,

Eating snails is risky. You need to be cautious when you see it.
