Slum Dawg Dillionaire Found a Conch

There was a debate about whether it was a whelk or a conch … technically, we think he found a conch eating a whelk.  See the whelk shell sticking out of the pink fleshy area, the conch was eating it!  If “The Google” is correct the pink flesh makes it a conch.  The Google also says whelk would have brown or black flesh. This was the first time we found a conch in Bonita Springs.  We were paddleboarding in the back bay just east of Bonita Bay towers where the channel opening is between Big Hickory Island and Little Hickory Island. If you know if this is a conch or a whelk leave a comment.
