What's the deal with snails?

I asked about getting some apple snails at my LFS and they said they could not get them. The LFS guy said that he did not think they were illegal in California, but that they just could not get them due to import hassles.

He said most of the most popular snails they used to have, they can't get anymore.

Anybody know more about this?

Looks like your fish store is right, guess they've become a pest http://www.floridaaquaculture.com/Pu...e%20Snails.pdf

I did a search on Yahoo Apple Snails California, seems according to the article above California isn't the only one that doesn't want these snails around.
