Mating Snails

I saw these two snails doing the nasty during my morning walk.  See how they're entwined with each other?

Whyfiles.org has an informative article on snails' mating process.  Snails, apparently, are hermaphroditic: they can take on male or female roles in reproduction.  Want to know what's weirder?  Look up the famous snail "love dart."
