hello, why Is this hexadentate/ why don't the oxygens with a double bond bind to the tm?

Normally Carbonate is monodentate, because it only has 120 degrees between its Oxygens, so two oxygens cannot bind to the same metal. However, in some cases carbonate bonds to two different metals, making it bidentate.
