First is a rock shell, the second looks like a purpura or a drupe. Both are likely to be predators.

Agreed. I would also not put them on whatever tile that is- it's likely to have cleaner residue that could harm them, and anyway it's better for them to be in water. 


Where did you find them?

Did you pick them up on a SeaShore? I do have a really thick guide, but need to know where they came from. BTW if they came from Florida, just say East Coast, Plead the 5th. California Tide Pool is a no-no too.
