Default shells from diving

Everyone knows not all dives are filled with spearing the entire time. So times like this me and my brother hunt for shells and such. I know a bit about some but if anyone knows names or facts about any of them. Please say. Most were gotten on night dives but some came from day dives. They were gottenbetween pt st.joe and dauphin island (where most were gotten )

Heres some more. Rother got the last three this weekend. He also saw what he calls a jewels box but couldnt it was barnacled up on a piece of structure. There was no animals in these and to my knowledge everything was legal in getting them.

Yes, they do eat other mollusks and decorate their dens with empty shells.
