If Jack Hanna and Steve Irwin taught us anything, it's that the world is full of interesting animals and insects. Some of them are adorable enough to cuddle. Others are aggressive hunters that move at lightening speed. And some of them are just downright terrifying (We're looking at you, great white shark.)
Then there are the creatures that fall into the "well that's bizarre" category.
There's no shortage of such living oddities, and no one knows that better than an insect breeder who recently shared a giant creature of the mollusk variety on social media.
Most of us love animals, especially the dog and cat variety.
But move into odd creature territory, and there's a good possibility we get creeped out really fast.
While snails aren't too strange, they still have a certain creepy factor.
This handsome guys actually lets all of nature's oddities get to know him personally.
via: FacebookMeet Adrian Kozakiewicz. He's an insect breeder behind Germany's Insecthaus. With a fearless and loving attitude toward all the world's creepiest and crawliest, Kozakiewicz has no problem getting up close and personal with all types of multi-legged friends. He has an vested interest in both insects and snails.
He's, undoubtedly, The Bug Whisperer.
via: FacebookNot many people would fit that title, but cruise through Kozakiewicz' Facebook page, and it's easy to see he has no issues with letting his "work" roam where it wants to. He's one with the bug universe, and seems to love studying his subjects in and out of their natural habitats.
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.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.
via: FacebookWhen 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.
