The answer is: Yes!!!!!!. This morning I came downstairs and turned on the MH and to my excitement the CA looked kinda cool(pic1)carpet eats snail 001.JPG..after a while it opened and....(pic 2)View attachment carpet eats snail 006.JPGwell lets just let the pic's explain....carpet eats snail 009.JPGcarpet eats snail 016.JPGcarpet eats snail 019.JPGView attachment carpet eats snail 029.JPGView attachment carpet eats snail 030.JPGView attachment carpet eats snail 031.JPGView attachment carpet eats snail 032.JPG All of this transpired in about 2 hours...and I have no idea how long he was in the stomach of the CA. It as trying to get him out of there, but I helped a little (making sure I didn't tear anything). The CA is about 8-9" inches in diameter and the freaking Mexican Turbo Snail is about a 1 1/2 to 2". Have had them both for close to six months and have never seen anything like it...Just thought I would share. Hope you enjoy.

( I set the snail do...very far away.. and in 20 minutes he walked away)

I watched a Stichodactyla gigantea Carpet eat a 12" long Naso lituratus once, so the answer is yes.
