Water snails (Bullia digitalis) devouring a Physalia physalis “Portuguese man-of-war” or “blue-bottle” jelly fish on a beach in Knysna, South Africa. Not very appetizing maybe, but its nature.

    They have beautiful shells!

    Cool shot, but I really like the title!

  • Yes they do have nice shells but most of their body parts seem to be out of the shell. Well, they don’t have much time, the tide is coming in.

    What a crazy shot! I never have seen anything like that before.

  • Hi Michael, yes they did look strange. I found them like that, took a couple of shots and left them to carry on with what ever they were doing.

    They are colourful, their shells are very beautiful.

  • Thank you Sharon. I wasn’t sure If I should upload it at first, as some people can be squeamish at the sight of “slimy snails” but I couldn’t resist sharing the colours and interesting interaction.
