:: Susan Hoi (Fossil Shell Beach)

The shell graveyard at Ban Laem Pho was once a large freshwater swamp, home to a particular variety of snail. During the Tertiary Age, that is about 40 million years ago, these snails lived and died by the million. The dead snails formed a layer upon which existed the living. Eventually, weather changes led to the disappearance of the swamp, but left behind was a layer of fossilised snail shells, about 40 centimetres thick, resting on 10 centimetres of lignite, below which was subsoil. Due to geographic upheaval, this shelly limestone is now distributed in great broken sheets of impressive magnitude on the seashore at Laem Pho.
