A drawing describing a kettle hole filled with water

Kuivakaivo is a small kettle hole bog located on the eastern slope of Nummikangas esker. It formed when an iceberg got stuck in the sand during the retreat of the glacier some 10 000 years ago. The iceberg melted and left behind a depression. This waterlogged depression developed into a bog, which is one of the smallest bogs in the area, but among the thickest. Peat thickness in Kuivakaivo is 6.7 meters, which is nearly two meters more than in Kauhaneva.
