No, that’s not a rabbit in a Halloween costume, it’s an achatina fulica, otherwise known as a giant African Land Snail. Depending on how you feel about snails these big boys are either the cutest thing on the planet or they’re the thing that should not exist. Their bodies can grow up to about 15 inches long, and they get incredibly hungry.

In their 10 year life span they can eat through pretty much anything, and people who’ve kept them as pets have found that they can even chew through plaster walls. If you take a giant land snail home make sure you’ve got plenty of food ready.

As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
