Hi Jens,

wieder ein schönes Video, ich finde diese Viecher sowieso klasse... Die können ja nix dafür, dass Ihre Vorvorfahren unsere Lieblingskrabbeltiere gefressen haben ;-) Vielen Dank fürs verlinken !

Hi everyone,

again a nice little clip which I found recently when I looked for some informations about life habits, this time a gastropod (you might know I'm also in mollusc studies;-)

This time it's about the horse conch (Triplofusus giganteus), a giant snail with taste for other gastropods (here a Tulip snail, Fasciolaria). Its fun to see the hermit crabs around who are in need for a new home. Note how the succeeding "crab" used its pincer to nip the snail to get the newly habited conch free of that canibal. By the way, hermit crabs are no crabs, they are a sort of marine cancer and its funny to see how they change their clothes.

all the best,
have fun and the narrator said conch and not 11 pound horse cock, as some had suggested in the comments of that nice clip.
The english speaker have trouble to pronounce a ch;-)
