Peppermint Shrimp Aggressive???

My peppermint shrimp is having a feast snacking on my snails in tank. Is this normal or did I get an overly aggressive shrimp

Unless you see that he's actually killing them, I would leave him. He could just be cleaning some funk off their shells.

I think they may be. Once they fall off the walls and end up on their back do they usually die?
