Educating the public is extremely important to him.
Because he’s blessed to have a curious attitude toward nature’s creepy-crawlers, instead of being terrified, Kozakiewicz is a huge advocate for getting to know the creatures we seem to actively avoid. He’s excellent at sharing new species with his social media followers and educating them on little guys they probably would’ve stepped over or hit with a newspaper.
As far as crawling things are concerned, he's the coolest guy in town.
It doesn’t take a scientist to see that the budding entomologist is ridiculously popular on all his social media accounts. With hundreds of thousands of dedicated bug lovers following him on Instagram and Facebook, Kozakiewicz has a fan base that’s listening and hangs on every insect and snail detail.
One of his more recent offerings was a giant snail. GIANT.
When he’s not letting bugs crawl all over his face, Kozakiewicz has a penchant for dragging huge snails out to parade on social media. The specimen above is a giant West African snail, a breed that can grow almost eight inches long and live for up to ten years. It’s not just your garden variety snail. Mostly because it’s closer to the size of a small cat.
That snail's got the moves. Albeit, extremely slow moves.
In the fascinating video above, the insect enthusiast does the public an amazing service by letting the average viewer get a closer look at how the incredibly large snail moves. It’s slow and steady, and also kind of mesmerizing to watch. His adorable handler makes the video a slam-dunk in the entomology world.
Everyone loves a giant snail. At least if it's from Insecthaus.
Far from being revolted, the comments from Kozakiewicz’s giant snail video range from delighted to over-the-top enthusiastic. For this Facebook commenter, it was just another amazing post from an awesome natural science whiz. Nothing like one-upping your co-workers when it comes to insider snail info.
