Invasive Giant African Land Snail sighted at Goa University
Invasive Giant African Land Snail sighted at Goa University [Biodiversity]
The Goa University campus at Taleigao plateau could be showing indicators of impact of gross human interference in the natural ecosystem as it has become a nursery of Giant African Land Snail, listed in world’s top 100 invasive species.
Two giant specimens of 11-cm long exotic invasive species of the snail, that bears the biological name Achatina fulica , were spotted second time in University campus. Earlier, young specimens of GALS were spotted inching their way across the footpaths at night.
This indicates that GALS is alive, reproducing and dispersing from the campus.
Specimens this year are double size of what was found last year in same area.
GALS ranges from 7 cm to 20 cm in length and the Goan specimens are identical at 11 cm in length.
Ecologically, the species are dangerous as they reproduce faster and take over entire ecosystems, this becoming a menace to crops.
