Yellow polyp eating hermits?

I was checking my tank out and saw a hermit's leg in one of the polyp of the Yellow Polyp I got. I found this pretty amusing. I would have never thought something like this could happen.

I would say its a shed from a hermit that ended up in there some how. IMO no way they could eat a hermit, now a hermit could eat a yellow polyp if it wanted..
