Brief Summary

Read full entry
The Baltic tellin lives dug into muddy or sandy sea bottoms of the tidal flats and coastal waters. Only its suction tubes extend beyond the the surface. These tubes are often nibbled upon by flatfish. The older they get, the deeper they dig themselves in. Baltic tellin shells are commonly found on the beach. They are often very colorful.
