Snails fighting or mating?

sorry didnt know where to post this. i have 4 snails in my tank. not sure what kind they are. the biggest in the tank just runs around till he runs into just this certain other one. when he finds it he wraps completely around it. ( hes 3x size of other ). seems like the other is trying to get away but theres just no chance. its be going on for last 35 mins. i just dont want it to drown the toher if they are fighting i will break them up. hes also not biting or anything cause i can see the big ones mouth and hes not using it. and if they are mating is there anything special i need to do for them? tyvm and sorry if this is posted in wrong place.

No worries, and especially there's nothing you should do. Let nature take its course for whatever they're doing - fighting, loving, or having a snack from another's shell.

Also, snails can't drown.
