    These LOOK like the type of snail that one gets on clams that predate on clams. But I am not 100% sure.

    Thanks JB,I found these on the net and looks like these guys when it's on the move, according to the site
    "Tiny Mud and Basket Snails are common on the beach. Some snails like the Mud Snails (Below) can graze algae, scavenge dead fish or vacuum the sediments for detritus."
