Mystery Snails eat dead fish?

I noticed one of my guppies wasn't looking too good. When I returned home, there was no sign of the guppy anywhere. Is it possible a pair of mystery snails could have eaten it, if it died?

Yeah I thought the same thing..thought they would choose veggies over meat. When my husband had temporarily put his black neons in my tank with golden snails..one fish died and 2 of the snails were like fighting over the dead body.. So then I figured i am going to start adding meaty food to their diet.. Something else surprised me to..I was told that golden snails will eat your plants..they don't even bother them..guess i keep them well fed though.
