Assassin snail!

Will an assassin snail kill snails larger than it? Ex: mystery snail

I've read that they generally don't attack snails much larger than they are, but it's possible they would, perhaps if they were quite hungry. Mystery snails don't have any defenses other than closing their doors, and since assassins drill into shells, the potential for killing a larger snail certainly exists.

In my experience they leave larger snails alone.

They might gang up on a mystery though.

I've read that several may work together to take down a much bigger snail.
