pink snails on thorny sea cucumber (Colochirus quadrangularis)

The thorny cucumber seems to be carrying some pink snails (family Eulimidae, genus probably Melanella). Additional information here and on reef central here. Apparently the shell is transparent and the pink coloration is the body of the snails.
