    If the white area was more yellow I'd say a bubble bee snail or beehive snail

    First picture, the backend is a lot thinner and with sharper end point.
    First whorl is also a lot more pronounced compared to second and third. including the thickness of the black line.

    Picture 2, the black line is similar in size all around all the whorls. Same on third.

    so, nope, not picture 2 or 3
