Hermit Crab attempts to evict a large Baler Snail..!!

A couple of weeks ago, whilst on the second of two dives at Mae Haad/Koh Ma with "buddy" Marcel Waldis, we came across the very unusual (and quite comical) sight of a White-Spotted Hermit Crab (Dardanus Megistos) seemingly attempting to wrestle a very large Indian Volute Baler Snail (Melo Melo) out of its shell..
