Austin Feeds a Trident's Trumpet Snail

Reading and experience has taught Austin that the Trident's Trumpet Snail eats crown of thorn sea stars, but also pin cushion stars. Knowing that crown of thorn sea stars are extremely poisonous Austin smartly opted for a pin cushion star he spotted and wanted to try and see if he could get the snail to digest. Did it work...

YEP!!! You can see just a little bit left of the pin cushion star under the bottom of the shell.
