In the two years since the snail was discovered in Miami-Dade County, officials say they have detected and eliminated 128,000 of the snails. The snails are considered one of the most damaging in the world because they consume at least 500 types of plants and can cause damage to buildings and carry dangerous parasites.

A vendor holds a snail for sale in his palm at the San Juan food market in Mexico City June 19, 2013. Mexico's taste for eating creepy crawlies, originating from the Pre-Columbian era, could be the answer to ending hunger. United Nations Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO) is encouraging the production of edible insects to supplement diets in areas where malnutrition is rife and as a measure to combat obesity. Nowhere has the message been more warmly received than in Mexico where insects have been part of the diet for hundreds of years. Pre-Columbian civilizations in the country ate them frequently as a main source of protein because meat through cattle raising did not exist and although conquistadors discouraged insect consumption, ethnic groups in the country continued to eat them.

A view shows the dry lakebed of the Cocorobo Dam, down to 20 percent capacity, in the town of Canudos, in the part of Bahia State declared to be in a drought emergency, January 15, 2013. Brazil's northeast is suffering its worst drought in decades, threatening hydro-power supplies in an area prone to blackouts and potentially slowing economic growth in one of the country's emerging agricultural frontiers. Lack of rain has hurt corn and cotton crops, left cattle and goats to starve to death in dry pastures and wiped some 30 percent off sugar cane production in the region responsible for 10 percent of Brazil's cane output.

Mussels start as larva, until they are heavy enough to sink to the bottom of the sea, where they grow wiry threads -- known as beards -- that allow them to latch on to anything around, forming great clumps of dark and heavily encrusted shells. There in the deep, they feed heartily on plankton and grow plump. Marine mussels tend to live on exposed shores in intertidal waters and after two to three years are ready to be harvested.

Customers eat mussels at the Chez Leon restaurant in central Brussels November 24, 2011. Mussels start as larva, until they are heavy enough to sink to the bottom of the sea, where they grow wiry threads -- known as beards -- that allow them to latch on to anything around, forming great clumps of dark and heavily encrusted shells. There in the deep, they feed heartily on plankton and grow plump. Marine mussels tend to live on exposed shores in intertidal waters and after two to three years are ready to be harvested.

Shipworms are seen in their boreholes in a mangrove trunk near Curuca at the mouth of the Amazon River February 18, 2011. Although it resembles a worm, the shipworm is actually a type of mollusk related to the clam and is commonly eaten raw by the region's residents. Brazilian fisherman Jose Alfredo de Souza Costa, 31, began fishing for a living at the age of 12 in the region where the Amazon River, with its drainage basin covering about 40 percent of South America, forces a massive plume of freshwater estimated at 20 percent of the world's freshwater entering the oceans, into the Atlantic.

A general view shows an oil terminal at Russia's Far-East port of Kozmino October 4, 2010. Russian scientists will now use sea scallops to monitor pollution levels at a Pacific oil terminal. An enormous sea scallop garden will be set up at the end of this month in Russia's Far East Kozmino Bay, eight time zones east of Moscow. It will be the first Russian port to use molluscs as a water-monitoring instrument. Picture taken October 4, 2010. REUTERS/Jessica Bachman (RUSSIA - Tags: ENERGY ENVIRONMENT SCI TECH)

Adult and baby snails slide on a table at the Corujeira snail-breeding farm, 50 km (31 miles) north of Lisbon May 18, 2009. The proverbial snail's pace can be deceptive, especially if you have millions of snails to handle and a business to run. Portugal lags behind France -- the world's biggest consumer of snails where some 30,000 tonnes of the gastropods are devoured annually as an exquisite delicacy -- by market size, but not by per-capita consumption, which is about the same.
