It's not the snails' fault they ended up in Fla--it's the fault of bad HUMAN judgment and likely disrespect for nature. Galileo upset the old order by demonstrating Earth is not the center of the solar system--now, it seems, people need to realize they aren't the center of nature....... I don't think we should take any life form for granted. It wasn't too long ago that the near-extinction of North American buffalo was inconceivable. It didn't take long for that to change........ We may not like a certain creature, but our fate is still linked to theirs. Disturb one strand of a spider's web and you disturb the whole web.
