Giant African Land Snail
Contest Directions: Photoshop the photo of this Giant African land snail any way you wish. These snail species are the biggest in the world, growing up to 30 centimeters (11.8 in) in length. They are native to West Africa (the coasts of Sierra Leone, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Togo, and Nigeria) and are considered a serious pest since they can eat and destroy crops and ecosystems due to substantial quantities of plant food they consume daily. Giant African land snails eat pretty much anything that's in their path and green. Each snail lays about 1200 eggs a year, so even several such snails can populate and destroy large ecosystems within months. Snails are hermaphrodites, thus even one snail can produce a whole snail colony when there's enough plant food nearby. Africans consider their meat a local delicacy. Some people like to keep these giant snails as pets too due to their exotic size. This is an Apprentice Contest. You are eligible to enter this contest if you have less than 5 golden trophies at Freaking News.
