During early Eocene time a lake was formed on the flood plain of a river near Ephraim, Utah. This lake was shallow and at least three miles long. It was occupied by clams, crustaceons and snails. These snails became abundant because favorable conditions existed. These conditions were abundant vegetation, plenty of food, favorable water chemistry and a muddy bottom.
