The Silence of the Lambs has creeped audiences out and put people off of fava beans for years. Al Pacino was considered for the part of Hannibal Lecter, but director Jonathan Demme wanted his Lecter to be a Shakespearean monster. He felt that a non-American actor would be the best at playing a character who uses language to manipulate people. [x]

The Giant African Land Snail (Achatina fulica) - this is a young one as it wasn’t nearly as big as they can be (up to eight inches long). We found this one crossing the road, in a rain storm, and he was probably three or four inches long. Interesting colors and markings. Even when you are looking for elephants and other big mammals you have to be aware of what’s about. Addo Elephant National Park (Eastern Cape Province) South Africa.
