Ok found something on Pinterest. It’s not real of course but funny to see and maybe believable. But copyright protected . I just googled it and it was midway down the page.

Limpets are teeny tiny IME though. Those are rather interesting looking for sure

This hero in a half shell looks remarkably like a Nerite with a different shape to it.

It looks to me to be Neripteron tahitensis, sold here as Batman nerite snails.

Do you think these are natural or someone did some tinkering to get the weird shells ?
