The Assassin Snail has a conical shell with shades of yellow and black stripes that resemble a bumblebee hence the name Bumblebee snail. The Assassin Snail removes unwanted snails without the use of chemicals is an ironic solution to the problem of snails (Malaysian Trumpet Snail, Ramshorn Tadpole snails to name a few) over-running an aquarium . Assassin snails has the ability to hunt down and kill other snails of similar size or smaller (I have some in with my apple snails) and literally suck it out of its shell. Assassin snails are not fast breeders.
