Vigna caracalla is sometimes sold as Phaseolus gigantea. It's tropical in nature so you may be able to find it on the web at a nursery specializing in tropical plants.

I was able to find one nursery in California with Vigna caracalla in stock. Contact Exotica Rare Fruit Nursery, PO Box 160, Vista, CA 92093, phone 760-724-9093 or visit their website:

Good luck with your new snail vine!
