Let's give Tiana her 15 minutes of fame

Tiana Walton, 9, of Pye Corner Farm, Alvanley, is awaiting official confirmation that she is a record breaker for keeping snails on her face... On Thursday 25 garden snails clung to Tiana’s face, smashing Australian Liam Kenny’s record of 15.

Animal loving Tiana, who next week starts year five at Abbey Gate School, said: "I am not squeamish. It is relaxing but it feels a bit cold. They are quite smelly and you can see their big long eyes facing you.

"I might try a different one now, or I would like to go the Olympics and be a gymnast."
At the Arbroath link there's a link to a video, for which I unfortunately can't find embedding code. If the still image above intrigues you, you definitely ought to watch the 2-minute video.
