A snail lifts a mushroom far larger than itself in the air. They are said to be able to lift and carry objects which weigh up to ten times as much as their body.

Despite this, the snail couldn't bear the weight of the Marasmius oreades mushroom, which eventually caused it to topple and fall on its shell. The photographs were taken by professional photographer Romain Doucelin, in the garden of his home in the village of Clonas-sur-Varèze, southeastern France.
