Tiger moves at a snail’s pace

Imagine finding this chomping through your vegetable patch.

Photo courtesy the Zoo This tiger snail at Paignton Zoo weighs around 500 grams – equivalent to 50 garden snails. Individuals can live for ten years.

You may not want to see this specimen in your garden, but Paignton Zoo keeper Lauren Lane is besotted with these amazing creatures and has nick-named this individual Sausage.

Paignton Zoo is a registered charity.
