A Unique Find

Post by Ladybird66 » Mon Nov 05, 2018 8:08 pm

I found this when pebble hunting a couple of years ago. I thought I’d hit the jack pot when I first saw it but on closer inspection I discovered it wasn’t what I thought.
Can anyone else guess what it is ?

Looks like a shell that has worm snail tubes growing over it.

Someone who doesn’t need SpecSavers ::g Well spotted Butty. I thought it was pretty and pretty unique. Thought it was a ring when I first spotted it but wasn’t disappointed (much) to dis cover it was only a shell covered in poo.
Amazing what’s out there. Thanks for looking. A clearer pic attached ::g
