Turritella of Texas

This gastropod Turritella sp. lived in the Eocene.  Specimen found in the Stone City Formation (aka Whiskey Bridge) of Brazos River, near Bryan, Texas.

Thanks to Dave M. for the specimens.

This next pictures clearly shows a boring hole in the shell.  Looks like this gastropod might have gotten preyed upon.
