Backyard Bushcraft - Edible Little Critters with Horns

Texas has an edible little critter with horns. The common brown garden snail (Helix_aspersa) is found in many areas throughout the state. The brown garden snail generally feeds on most any plant that is available, whether it’s in your garden, your flower bed or your greenhouse.

This species is also edible and constitutes a good source of survival food. The appendages on the top of its head are often referred to as “horns” and the lower appendages are referred to as the feet.

Got Escargot?

Staying above the water line!

Tried some huge land snails in west Africa one time and they weren't too good. Maybe these would be better.

There are just some things that do not belong in one's mouth!

I'd perhaps eat one before a big mac, but hopefully I never have to.

Although they are edible, they are way down on my list.

Probably best if you keep your pantry well stocked...just in case.
