Think lobo brains just sit around?

300 nassarius snails were added to my tank yesterday. As they started crawling everywhere to find a home, 2 crawled across the larger of my 2 red lobos. http://www.aquariumadvice.com/photop...71&ppuser=9944
Well tentacles came out from everywhere and held the snail and then moved it over to one of the mouths and then swallowed it whole. This happen twice. Melissa just told me she filmed it spitting out the empty snail shells today. 8O I was shocked. I have seen tentacles come out in the evenings but nothing like this.
