Feeding Oliva

This is the final photo in a series of shots capturing an Oliva sp. snail wrapping itself around a fish carcass and dragging it under the sand. I was shooting the snail without knowing that it was on the hunt. It clearly 'smelled' or otherwise sensed the dead fish and went right for it. In a matter of seconds it had wrapped its body around the fish and headed into the sand.
