Spiral shelled fossil found in central Texas?

This possible fossil is in a Texas state park I frequent daily.

I just realized I haven't scaled it for you, but it is probably about 2 ft across. I can take a pic with scaling on Monday if you'd like.

I overhead once that it was a fossilized shell of some type, but I can't remember what it was called.
