Snails and slugs are a common nuisance of gardens in Oregon.  Nathan would set out bait and the next day we would marvel at the size of some that found their way into the bowls.

It’s a little longer than her hand

I was trying to think of an adjective to describe the snails the kids have found here in PNG.  Huge? Giant?  Enormous? Jumbo?  Colossal? Monstrous?  All of the the above?  These guys are pretty impressive.  When Nathan gets the garden put in we’ll see if these adjectives could also apply to the destruction they bring.  Not to fear!  My kids will happily pluck them out of the garden.
