These tiny shells are inside the conch egg string. The egg string looked like seeweed when we found it on the beach, but there were surprises indside. Each baby shell was about a millimeter and a half long.

So that is what they look like when they are young? Feed them well and give them lots of love as my mouth is watering for a bowl of conch chowder! Neat pictures.
