Hanging in Love!! A pair of mating snails hanging from a rotting log using a thin string.<br />
Never seen the snails hanging around and making out this way!! Even the slightest wind would make them spin every possible direction.<br />
It must have been a roller coaster ride for them :D<br />
The only reason i can think of is to prevent being eaten by a predator!! <br />
Any other reasons that you can think of about this ? india,kalakkad,kmtr,macro,mating,natural history,snails,tamil,tamil nadu,western ghats,wild Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
