Gold inca snail eat each other?

I have a 10 gallon freshwater tank. A few blue neons, and untill recently I had just one gold inca snail, around an inch in diameter. Yesterday my snail escaped out of the back of the tank and I later found it sitting on the counter. Thankfully it lived when I returned it to the tank, and thought I would get another snail. Now the problem is that the larger gold inca, attaches itself to the new snail, roughly a half inch in diameter. Now will the larger snail eat the other? any help would be apprecited, and thank you for your time.

Sometimes they just like riding eachother, but it could also be that they are trying to mate.

Hey Kyle,

If you get a few more, then you can buy them the "Twister" game and watch them play. ha ha
