Watch a Cone Snail Eat a Fish as Terrifyingly as Possible [Video]

The more you pay attention to the Internet, the more you realize that snails are absolutely terrifying. Not only can they eat things with shocking speed, but this cone snail can grow to a massive size and swallow much bigger prey whole. Before it does that, though, it paralyzes its prey by emitting poison. After it swallows the paralyzed fish whole? It stabs it with a barb and poisons it again. Luckily for us, the video above has a good view of what it looks like to be swallowed whole by a cone snail. It looks like terror, if you’re wondering.
