Frogs beating up my snail!

I have 2 Albino African frogs and one apple snail. The snail was in his own quarantine tank for a while but now he is back in with the frogs. when i first got the snail, the frogs pushed him around for about the first hour, and then left him alone. But NOW, they are kicking him around and not stopping. the snail has been in the tank for almost 30 hours, and the frogs are still beating him up. even if he gets up on the glass of the tank, they kick him off. What do i do!?!??!

will other fish distract them from the snail?
it seems to be only one of the frogs that picks on him.

Please HELP!

ACF are very greedy little guys. They like to eat, and when they're stuffed, find something else to eat. It is highly likely that they can smell your snail and will soon attempt to rip him out of the shell to eat him. They might just be hungry. Try a good dose of bloodworms or brine shrimp to fill them up/distract them.

That is what we were afraid of, we will separate.
