Carnivorous Snail From New Zealand – Video

Whilst most snails are happy to stick to a diet of fruit and veg, some snails require more to satisfy their taste buds!

The video below shows a Powelliphanta Superba – a giant land snail which is native to New Zealand. These snails are carnivorous and feed mostly on earthworms, but have also been know to eat other soft invertebrates.

Not only are they meat eaters, but just look at how quick it gulps down that worm! They might be slow movers, but when they are hungry, there is no stopping these snails from grabbing a lightning quick meal!
