Clea helena: dancing with death

 ^^Clea helena is a predatory snail, feeding on other snails 
as well as dead or dying animals.
^^known as wolf or assassin snails, Clea is popular with 
aquarists needing to control 'pest' snail populations. It uses that 'elephant trunk' to locate it's prey.
Climbing onto the back of the predator is a common escape stratigy that sometimes works.
