Bokkharani National Park
or Fossils Shell Beach
Susan Hoi or Fossils Shell Beach situated at Ban Laem
Pho, 17 kilometres from town. The area was once a large
freshwater swamp, home to a kind of snail. Over eons
dating from the Tertiary Age, about 40 million years
ago, these snails lived and died by the million.
Eventually, weather changes caused the swamp's
disappearance, but by then the layer of fossilised snail
shells was forty centimeters thick, resting on ten
centimeters of lignite below which is the subsoil.
Because of geographic upheaval, the fossilised shells
are now distributed in great broken sheets of impressive
magnitude on the seashore at Laem Pho.
