Living by the sea for the moment, it is quite obvious to look for miniature sea shells. It started out big, but I remembered that I actually found some VERY tiny shells here in Denmark many years ago. I wondered where they had gone...
My husband asked me, if I actually could see what I was looking for ;-) A very indiscrete but also a very precise question...and it was calling for an experiment..
So I arranged a contest with my son (age 19) to find the smallest sea shell of the day, and things were happening very fast, he found several in a few minutes beating mine. ((and he could win the contest every day now, if he wants to ;-0))
I show you a couple of the small shells, and I added the natural average sizes to compare. The shells are photographed on a 1:12 table too...you have to click the pictures to enlarge and compare..
