MoClay at the Limfjord
The MoClay (Moler) in the Limfjord is a mecca if you have an interest in finding your own fossils. The unique MoClay, which is not found anywhere else in the world, is known for its abundant fossil fish, insects, reptiles, birds, and plants that lived 55-53 million years ago. The sea was full of fish then, making it easier to find fossil remains from them now. But it is also possible to find birds and insects as they were blown out over the sea and ended their days on the bottom of the sea. The MoClay pits and beaches on Nordmors are great spots, just as Ertebølle beach in Vesthimmerland also offers good opportunities to find fossils.
The fossils tell a story about the earth, the climate, and development. You can have a look into the life of animals and plants of that time. You will most certainly feel the fantastic buzz of history when you "crack open" a stone and it contains remains of an animal that had its life in a completely different time period.
