They live in and from the limestone.

  3. Nature is awesome, that's all one can say. :) I remember finding stones like this when I was little and was very intrigued by them, wondering how they came to be like that... Well, now I know!

  4. I have some rocks/shells that have tiny holes and I thought they were coral but they are old shells that have been inhabited by tiny worms, so interesting.
