Great video on youtube. The ultimate cold-hearted predator..... doesn't even stop moving while it gulps down it's meals. Talk about fast food!

Coincidentally, Roger U. referred me to this clip a few weeks ago and we've been trying to figure out the species of the muncher and munchee. Perhaps these are Dondice banyulensis and Facelina rubrovittata?
