Mississippi gastropod
Can anyone ID the shell found at the start of this video?  It is about 2-3" and found near shore in Miss. Sound. Very common.  Google:  MOVO2C  Shells at Biloxi - YouTube    Anyone know the scientific and common name?  Thanks in advance.

I think it could be this:

But it is hard to tell from moving pictures. Can you take any stills photos of them?
They could even possibly be this:

I have found out that it is this:  Google: Stramonita canaliculata  Gray, 1839  (Southern Oyster Drill). Thanks.
