Brief Summary

Read full entry
If the Norway cockle wants to escape, it is just like an underwater kangaroo. It can jump large distances on the sea floor by pressing out water. They are commonly found in the North Sea but further out to sea. Fresh shells are rarely found on Dutch beaches. You usually find fossils on the beach, dating back to the Eemian. They are then around 100,000 years old.
