Sand full of life

My last post about the mysteries of sand was successful. I got some useful insight. Here is another photo of seashells picked from a single sand sample.

This time it is from Majorca, Spain. If You know more precisely to which organisms these seashells belonged or think that some of them may be misidentified, don’t hesitate to contact me.
