Helen the Assassin

Our aquarium is full, but partly full of snails…so we decided we had to take serious action and introduce one more resident: ASSASSIN SNAIL

Clea Helena, or Anentome Helena, eat other snails, hence being known as assassin snails. They’re not actually a snail, but are whelks.

Here she’s hiding at the back, being all stealthy. We decided she’s a she, because we decided to name her Helen…

Our Helen’s been doing some good work, and there’s far less of the other snails now.
