Making Molluscs

Garden Snail Cornu aspersum mating

Apparently if you are a snail and are in a romantic mood all you need is a large green leaf, some shade, and a mate, of course. I found these pair of Garden Snails (Cornu aspersum) enjoying a romantic moment or two this morning at around 8:00, yet they were still at it over two hours later!

Looks like I am going to have baby snails in a couple of weeks time.

  1. Hey, they are snails…everything takes more time! LOL! Great photos! I like the last one where it looks like he’s looking at you saying, “do you mind!” Ha, ha.

  2. Pete that is just precious! I love that last pic with one eye peeking out – maybe saying ‘Excuse me! This is a private moment!’ Looking forward to seeing the babies if you find them πŸ™‚
