Giant African Land Snail on wet tarmac road (South Africa) by Steve Lamb
Via Flickr:
The Giant African Land Snail (Achatina fulica) - this is a young one as it wasn’t nearly as big as they can be (up to eight inches long). We found this one crossing the road, in a rain storm, and he was probably three or four inches long. Interesting colors and markings. Even when you are looking for elephants and other big mammals you have to be aware of what’s about. Addo Elephant National Park (Eastern Cape Province) South Africa.

Your Shot member K H. on capturing this image. “The little baby elephant fell into the waterhole and had a hard struggle getting out again. For more than 2 hours, its desperate mom tried to help it out, but didn’t make any progress. In the end, the rangers at Addo Elephant National Park rescued the baby with a rope.” Photograph by K H.

Rest In Peace.
