A moon snail with its foot extended in the position it uses to plow through the mud. Moon snails glide on a voluminous mucus covered body part called a foot. If these snails encounter a clam, they envelope it in their fleshy foot, and use a mouth part called a radula to drill a hole and eat their prey. The radula is like a tongue with teeth that rasps until a hole is made. A chemical is secreted to help soften the hard shell, and the process is slow and methodical. Pick it up to see if it is in the process of drilling another animal. Moon snails are not discriminating, and will even drill another Moon snail if it is encountered.
