Unhappy Bettas and Ghost Snails

So I have a couple ghost snails living with my girls and yesterday I noticed that one of the snails had died and the bettas were playing tug-a-war with him. Will they eat him?

Thanks,

Pretty much. You have to remember that these fish are carnivores and it is in their nature to hunt and eat other things. I used to have a male who would grab a snail by the body and thwack the shell really hard against the glass a few times to get the meat from inside. I used to think there was something wrong with my heater because it was making weird noises, but then I caught him in action!
