Fight Against Maturity

How do you walk a pet snail? Very slowly.

Man’s best friend?

A Chinese man says he’s had the same snail as a pet for 11 years – and takes it for walks. Yang Jinsen has now had his pet for twice the normal life span of a snail, reports the Southern Metropolis News.

Yang, a migrant worker in Dongwan city, found the snail by the roadside on his way home from school in 1997. Back then, he was 14 and the snail was the size of a small coin. Now, he’s a married man and the snail fills the palm of his hand.

“I built a small home for it in the yard, and fed it water and soil,” he said. “On weekends, I would take it walking in the fields, and in the evenings I would put it on my desk, playing with it while doing my homework.”


And Tommy Smothers thought a pet chicken was bad…
