Can you guess what this is? Answer: It’s a fossil – Gastropod – PLeurotmania sp. Inferior Oolite. Gastropods include sea shellfish such as whelks, and land creatures such as snails. Gastropods have a single shell. Their name is derived from gaster + poda (Greek) meaning stomach foot. If you watch a snail moving along on its single foot, you can understand the name.
