Un caracol gigante se ha viralizado tras la publicación de

Los animales exóticos son cada vez más apetecidos como mascotas, pero hay uno que muchas personas no se atreverían a adoptar, un caracol gigante africano, que esta semana ganó notoriedad en redes sociales, luego de que una usuaria en Twitter compartiera una foto de su regalón.

La imagen de un caracol gigante junto a su dueña se hizo viral en los últimos días por el impresionante tamaño del molusco, cuyo caparazón puede llegar a medir entre 10 y 30 centímetros.

De acuerdo al medio ABC, este tipo de caracol está muy de moda como mascota en algunos países aunque aseguran que el contacto con él es potencialmente peligroso ya que es portador de nematodos, unos parásitos que pueden causar meningitis a quienes entren en contacto con ellos. Su publicación, hecha el pasado 23 de julio, ha superado los 45.000 retuits y los 127.000 'me gusta', pero Madds ha salido al paso de las especulaciones para matizar que ella no es la protagonista de la imagen.

Afortunadamente, la tuitera que compartió la foto no tiene un caracol gigante africano en casa. "Estoy recibiendo un montón de preguntas, así que voy a aclarar algunas cosas. Desafortunadamente, la fuente original se ha perdido, así que no puedo darle el debido crédito", indicó.
