What is this?!?

Hello! I do not know what this is. I need your help. It does not really move (Well I never seen it move) every time I "crush" it, it makes a hard snapping sound.

Hard to tell from the pic but based on the size I would guess seed shrimp(ostracods).

Imo I think it's a baby snail. I have had the same thing before and they definitely move. Im not saying for sure that's what it is just a guesstimation

My vote is also limpets... which are kind of like snails. They move, but very slowly.

That's most likely what they are. I thought snails but even snails move faster than these things do🤣🤣🤣
