Any Guesses? – Never Mind! Time’s Up! Answer is Below! Woohoo!

I don't think it'll be as difficult as some of my past "what is it" offerings….

That, my friends, is the operculum of a sea snail my husband caught while he was digging quahogs yesterday.  We cooked up the snail, and the operculum popped off. 

Pretty, isn't it?  And we've all learned a new word, too! 

It's the little things, people.  The little things.

  1. Bwahahahahah!

    Then my work here is done!

    If no one guesses it (and arkonitebabe, you are SOOOOO close) I’ll give the answer later this evening.  I think.  My son has a friend sleeping over tonight, so I might get sidetracked.  But I’ll try not to.

  2. Neither!  It’s an operculum, which translates to “little lid” and is kind of the protective cover on a sea snail.  It popped off during cooking and I thought it was really pretty, so I kept it.  And took pictures of it.
