Do snails & slugs eat earthworms?

13 years ago

While searching on another matter, I came across this snip of info. I often find slugs on the carpet/wood covers to my in-ground worm pit. I have always just thought that these creasures only eat plant matter and that they were there because of moisture and plant matter in the bedding,and always kill them. But now I wonder if they are also there to eat worms.

Scroll down to 'ecology'

...snip.... . Earthworms are also eaten by many invertebrates such as ground beetles and other beetles, snails, slugs.

Here is a link that might be useful: Worms eaten by ......snails, slugs
