Wolfsnail

"A snail may seem an unlikely candidate for most ferocious predator, but the wolfsnail certainly deserves consideration. … A few lines of text per page accompany bright, close-up color photographs that not only detail the snail's search for its prey (leaf-eating snails and slugs leave detectable trails of slime), but also the prey's demise."
