    Once the epitome of domestic pets, dogs and cats are being hounded off their pedestal as people choose more exotic and extravagant creatures of the wild to have as their companions.

    Snails are becoming increasingly popular creatures to have as pets. A short looped video published on Instagram shows the fascinating process of feeding a snail.
