An album containing some of my (@Max-fossils) photos from the Zandmotor (NL)!
The Zandmotor is a big beach on the coast of the Netherlands. It is known for its variety of fossils: abundant fossil seashells (mostly clams and cockles); fish material; sometimes bird material; the occasional shark teeth (some from the very early Holocene, others from the Eocene); and of course mammal material (mammoth, woolly rhino, cave lion, hyena, horse, etc.)! The bone material is either from the middle Pleistocene (600'000 years ago), from the late Pleistocene (40'000 years ago) or from the very early Holocene (9'000 years ago); about 90% are from the late Pleistocene. Most of the seashells are from the middle Pleistocene, more precisely the Eemian stage (120'000 years ago); however, seashells from other ages are found too.
Other (non-fossil) finds include: modern seashells and artifacts.
I hope you enjoy the photos!
Have a nice stay,
