In New Leaf

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, an information board in the aquarium will list information about this creature.

"They are related to spiral shells. Also, they have lids that cover the openings of their shells. When they walk, they remove the lid and move in the shell by shuffling their feet, much like snails. They become active at night and eat seaweed. They are delicious when cooked in the shell."

Further Information

Main article: Turban shell on Wikipedia

Turbo cornutus, the horned turban, is a delicacy in that is known as さざえ (sazae) in Japan. After being cooked, it can be pulled out by pulling on its operculum, a defensive lid that prevents the snail from drying out. As it is such a prized delicacy, it is raised commercially. They are bred and dumped into the sea to finish their life cycle, which reduces its genetic diversity, thus making it prone to disease.
