    If I found a living one I would call it a Moon Snail, any ideas if the fossil one goes by the same name? #fossil

    • Yup, also called a moon snail

    • Yup, “fossil moonsnail” is good. If it’s the same species, the common (ie English) name doesn’t change between fossil and modern specimens, and this applies to most fossils
