Yesterday it was Godzilla plummeting to Earth, having already wreaked havoc in Japan with the earthquake and minor tsunami.  Today…it’s giant slugs who eat houses.

No kidding.  Miami, Florida, is currently host to some Giant African Land Snails, which can grow to 10 inches long and eat the stucco from the sides of houses, like kids attacking life-sized gingerbread houses.  They are, obviously, a non-native species, and they have been there for a few years now. 

Luckily, I know what to do about it, having been one of the lucky few to have watched the awesome 1988 movie Slugs: The Movie.

So beware – as it was prophesied, the end of the world is coming, and if it isn’t Godzilla, it’s slugs.  (And if the trailer isn’t enough to convince you not to watch it, the whole movie is available online!)
