Looks like an elephant slug to me. The first time i saw one in my tank i wondered the same thing. I didnt want to take any chances so i tried to grab it to put in my sump. well it got away from me, but a few days later i saw it had reached the sump on its own, go figure. well anyways, now i have like 10 or something in there, but they havnt done any harm to anything. i think they just graze on algae. i wouldnt worry too much about him.

It's a slug??!?! If you look closer it looks like some kind of creature with a devilish grin and two small beady eyes ready to bite your fingers off if you get too close.

Does it have a fleshy mantle or is the top area only shell? Looks more like a chiton or other armored worm than an elephant snail.

Cheers
Steve

It does look like a snake if you look at it the right way...something about the way the light hits it. Looks like it has 2 beady eyes and a mouth.
