‘Slow loving’ at Exmoor Zoo

Snogging snails make the most of Valentine’s Day at North Devon attraction.

WHEN it comes to sloppy Valentine’s kisses, nobody does it better than these loving giant land snails at Exmoor Zoo.

Of a colour variety called jade snails, the gargantuan gastropods are real romantics that often spend over an hour caressing each other prior to mating.

The attraction near Bratton Fleming is inviting courting couples to visit their local BIAZA (British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums,) zoo and adopt an animal for their cherished one this February 14.

A loving leopard, passionate puma or even adoring agoutis awaits their starry-eyed gaze. Find out more at www.exmoorzoo.co.uk.
