It may be the egg casings of a moon snail. They are shaped like a collar.

> 1. There's this thing we find on the beach. It is shaped like a doughnut
with a bite taken out. It is about 6 inches across. Rubbery, thin, dark
green. The part toward the center is raised. There are lots of them on South
Carolina beaches. Egg cases? I don't think so. But I've been wrong before.
> 2. Non-SR: Tank trucks have this diamond shaped thing on the back with a
number. "1203" stands for gasoline. But what do other numbers stand for? I'd
like to know the difference between a tanker carrying milk and one carrying
Sulphuric Acid. How does one find out? The library wasn't very helpful. Why
is it a secret?
