I’m not exaggerating: this is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in quite a while. Samuel Copeland and Aleia Murawski create amazing miniature worlds for their pet snails and they are insanely impressive.

So how did anybody even think about doing something like this?

Copeland said that he and Murawski started the project when they found the snails while visiting Copeland’s parents in Illinois. He added,

“We made a terrarium for themโ€ฆand around the same time, we started making miniature scenes together.

At first, we were keeping them as pets and just loved looking at them every day. Then we realized, the sets we were making were roughly snail-sized and we loved the idea of animating these rooms.”

Take a look at these little worlds they’ve created. They are spectacular.
