I like this!

I am seeing also some snails. But perhaps there are also some rudists in the mix? I am not sure, though.

The coiled shapes are internal casts of rudists.

Thanks, now I can recognize them! Oh well, so different from the hippuritids and radiolitites I am a little bit familiar with.

Look at the Caprinids and Requienids.

I've always wondered what a sampler plate of Cretaceous or even Paleozoic oysters would have tasted like. Of course you would have needed a dinosaur-sized platter for a dozen of them Exogyras or Crassostraeas....

 

And it's anyone's guess if rudists were worth eating...

Ahhh, but the belemnite calamari would have been quite a treat! :D

I almost said "of coarse they were", but then I remembered fresh water mussels. :P

Even if it's a rudist reef, the thought of snail cake...well it made me :).

It is in fact from Texas, 95% of what I e found myself is from here. My boyfriend found one (I posted 2 pics here) almost the exact same size and material. More specifically it was in between New Braunfels and Canyon Lake I THINK off 2673 but not 100% on that....I look at ALOT of rocks......as for size I figured the stool it’s sitting on would give a vague idea but I wouodnt want to carry this thing very far move and I’m pretty strong lol for a girl....it’s over a foot at the longest - I will post more pics. LOVE “snail cake” my boyfriends find  the stringy things in some caves are coral and is that a clown fish poking its nose out of there?! (I can dream)I was guessing along with what y’all said that I’ve read so far . Thanks for looking
