Snail Eats Worm With Shocking Speed, Terrifying Efficiency [Video]

Far from the mundane garden snails that we here in the US are familiar with, New Zealand snails are large, stealthy predators. Watch in horror as the Amber Snail silently stalks its squishy prey: The earthworm. Recoil in fear, as the snail deploys its terrifying mouth parts and attacks the worm with split-second speed. Shudder as it sucks down its meal like squirming spaghetti.

You’ll never look at garden snails the same way ever again.
