he common garden snail is not a creature that most people would consider cute. Mostly due to the slime factor, the general reaction tends to be one of disgust, and theyre definitely not something you would want inside your home.
But recently, a photo surfaced on Twitter that caused users to question everything theyve previously thought about snails, and it caused a lot of conflicting feelings.
This is a giant African land snail.
Native to East Africa, they average around 7.9 inches in length.
And yes, they basically look like a bald rabbit stuffed inside a shell.
Twitter user @whatmaddness posted this photo of the bizarre creature on July 23.
The original poster later clarified that this was in fact not her pic, and was actually taken somewhere in Russia.
The response was huge, with users expressing both their distaste and adoration, some both at the same time.
This man’s child is setting herself up for a very disappointing Christmas this year.
I’m guessing this isn’t something you’ll find at your local Human Society.
Maybe just go with a pet rabbit instead?
Some were justifiably terrified by the image.
I think, for me, it all comes down to whether or not slime is involved.
Just imagine the size of that slime trail!
This post really illustrates the inner conflict caused by the photo.
Where are the eyes?Are those tentacles?! Get it away from me!
…but can I just try petting it once?
