Look at these little guys! The shells are in the Auger family, but I don't know their precise name.
The other thing I don't know is whether these are the critters that are supposed to live in the shell or if they are some type of body-snatchers....oops, I mean shell-snatchers. Something tells me they are an invader.
Right now you can walk out to a sandbar in the Gulf and scoop them up by the handful. If you put them in a bucket of saltwater, you'll swear they are trying out for the WWE! The tiny creatures are not amiable at all. Then again, I'd probably be fighting mad if someone scooped me out of my home and dropped me in a bucket with a bunch of other ill-tempered strangers.
