Yes, it may look like that, but it isnt. (You can check for this fascinating group of creatures in Wikipedia.)

They are meat eaters, living off insects, snails, centipedes, spiders etc.

They catch their prey with a sticky saliva that rapidly turns hard, then pucture it, and inject enzymes that digest the prey. They have large, complex brains that they apparently use to keep a complicated hierarchical order, and to wage war against strange individuals of the same species. Their sex lives are unbelievably weird!
