This post is a continuation of the theme on the variability in the size, shape, colour, texture, infestation and encrustation in shells of the British native oyster. The photographs show empty European Flat Oyster shells (Ostrea edulis Linnaeus) as they were found on the wet sand at Rhossili Bay, Gower, at low tide.The pictures first show the shell as it was found in situ and then flipped over to see the other side.
For more photographs and information on this theme click here, or in the right-hand side bar of the home page, for the OYSTER VARIATIONS category.
