Day 51 Reveiw

It was a nice but wet day. I walked in the rain this morning and was rewarded with the coolest experience. I was walking up a steep wet road and in front of me I saw thousands of snails. Some were as big as my fist. I found this link on wikipedia. I am not sure if it is the Giant African Land Snail but I suspect so. I thought they were really cool.

Interestingly, these snails first appeared on Okinawa during the Occupation by the Americans. There is no sources cited but on wikipedia someone has written they were introduced by the American Military as a food source in the Pacific during WWII. That is a pretty hard core diet.
