Slug eating worm

Observation - Slug eating worm. Description: This orange form of Arion ater was eating a dead worm on the Ilfracombe - Mortehoe cycle track. It was a very wet day and the slug was quite active. My ID books mention that slugs will eat dead animal matter, if they find it, but this is the first time
