What kind of shell is this?


Recommended Posts

I believe what you have is a Olive Snail shell, I'm not sure which of the Olive Snail species yours is, there are many different species, there are Olive snails world wide, and the shells are popular with shell collectors, also made into jewelry and art/decorative items.

The Letter Olive snail is the state shell of South Carolina, my home state. 

Olive snails are meat eaters and are sand-burrowers, they mainly feed on bi-valves and carrion.
