Delicious intruder: the Red King Crab

Or should it be called "Animals Gone Wild".
Guest host Daniel Frankl and producer Sarah Johnson provide you with a selection of stories about our spiny, furry, shelled friends. Enjoy.

Segment 2 - Festival of the Snail
Every summer, the people of Casumaro hold a huge snail festival – the sagra della lumaca – attracting visitors from all over Italy and beyond. Dany Mitzman was there.

Segment 3 - Pig Heaven
