Default Snail Pair

Found this lovely couple in front of my home. Looks like snails do it too.

Great sharp photos!!
Looks a lot like a local species called White Lipped Forest Snail (Triodopsis albolabris I think..). To add to the amazing photo - snails are both male & female, and impregnate each other!
