Wedge clam shell

Donax hanleyanus


The animal is a bivalve and only one half of the shell is shown in the photo. Usually only one half is found. This shell is very common in the region, and the living organism can also be commonly seen burrying in the sand in the zone where the water spreads over the sand after the waves break.
