The Florida bonneted bat (Eumops floridanus) is a species of bat in the genus Eumops, the bonneted bats or mastiff bats, that is endemic to southern Florida. This species has one of the smallest geographical distributions of any New World bat. It has been called “one of the most critically endangered mammal species in North America.”
Giant African landsnail. They’re native to
Africa and are routinely confiscated at airports as they are very
popular as pets in the Western world. The species isn’t currently
under threat of extinction, but they are considered an invasive species
so imports are tightly regulated. There is a population of these snails
spreading in Coral Gables, Florida.
