Just to east of Port Elizabeth is the Sundays River Valley. From the mouth of the Sundays River running east is the biggest coastal dune field in the Southern Hemisphere, namely the Alexandria Dunefields. Recently we went on the Sundays River Ferry for a pleasure ride. The ferry stops close to the river mouth for passengers to get off and go for a short walk onto the dunes. In between the dunes I found this snail “cemetery“. It was quite a peculiar sight with thousands of snail shells all lying in this one area. Most of them were European snail while the big shell is a Zebra snail. I would love to try and find out why the shells are all in one specific place.
