Hunting In A Bush?

The coyote has found something in this bush that has caught its interest. It appears to be snails that have maneuvered their way up. Especially on damp days, snails can be found high off the ground on almost all types of growth. It looks like the coyote carefully “picked” the first snail off the tree and thrust to the ground before picking it up again and swallowing it whole. The coyote then continued its search and seems to have found more, but these next ones were not thrust to the ground — just swallowed.

I went back to check out the snails later — the bush is California poison oak. The bush was absolutely “swarming” with snails, as you can see from the bottom row of photos. Mmmm, escargot!
