I came across this strange shell some years ago and my research concluded that it was an Operculum (gastropod)(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operculum_(gastropod)) and I am interested in knowing more about the operculum. What is its uses, how is it formed, will I fine something inside if I break it, how does the animal feed itself inside this, and so on.
