Black Turban (Black Tegula)

I'm having a tough time calling this one. It has some gunk on it but it doesn't have the worn
top a Black Turban is suposed to have. If it is a Black Turban, they are reported to live 80 to 100 years (or until
someone steps on it). It's on a piece of Giant Kelp (Giant Perennial Kelp) that it
was feeding on.

Ruth brought us a number of treats from the ocean. This piece of kelp had a few
snails on it.
