Boots! I love them, wish I had more of them…
Everything in Hawaii is lush and majestic…except for the terrifying and enormous snails.
This is one of the smaller specimens we saw, next to a quarter for perspective. We ran across a shell easily twice as large as this behind a bush in the yard.
I tried to research the history of these giants, but only got to “invasive African species” before getting too grossed out by photos.
