No idea but it's pretty freaky looking. Alien IV auditions perhaps? Good luck trying to figure it out.

some one else said it may be a slipper shell... i looked them up and this seems to be the case they "according to research" appear to be peaceful critters that attached to the shells of others and cause no harm... i am hoping this is the case because if it hurts my favorite snail i am gonna be one angry guy!!!

I was hoping someone would tell you..you've got me wondering what it is. I did a search on slipper shell images and it looks so thin or flat to be one not unless this is how they start out but I don't know. Looks like a patch on a pair of pants. I am going to keep following this thread for sure.
Hopefully it's not harmful to your snail.

Hope whatever it is doesn't harm him!

Or like some kind of Frankenstein thing! It even looks like it's stitched on. I'm curious too, it looks so bizarre...

I see those all the time down in the tide pools when the tide is low. They are plastered on the rocks, along with the mussels and snails. I have no idea what they are called and if they are harmful or not. :-?
