Giant, shelled slime spewers are showing up in Texas.

Who even knew there was an Institute for the Study of Invasive Species? It sounds like some ignored sub-department that an unshaven John Malkovich works for in an alien invasion movie.

Anyway, apparently it is a huge problem that when people see giant freakin' African snails in their backyard, the first thing they want to do is pick them up. Because...they're so cute? And then, SURPRISE! You've got meningitis.

They lay up to 100 eggs a year.

Now, not to mock death, but how amazing is this interviewee's descriptor?

Watch the full video after the jump. Syfy couldn't have done it better.
