The Moon snail is the overachiever of the mollusk family, which is saying something, as Mollasca is one of the most diverse groups of animals on the planet. A voracious predator, the Moon snail produces hydrochloric acid and other enzymes to help drill into and liquify the insides of its favorite prey, other mollusks. Capable of living fifteen years, this creature can regulate the water capacity in its 'foot', a unique adaptation as it moves through the muddy sediment of our intertidal zones.
