Giant African snails confiscated from traveler at Detroit airport

Some of the biggest snails in the world have recently been found in the Detroit metro.

About the size of a human fist, giant African snails can measure up to 8 inches in length and 5 inches in width.

On March 9, US Customs and Border Protection seized six giant African snails at Detroit Metropolitan Airport (DTW) from a Ghanaian citizen, officials said.

Steven Bansbach, public affairs specialist for U.S. Customs and Border Protection in the Chicago Field Office, wrote in an email to the Detroit Free Press saying giant African snails are banned in the United States.
