An oyster does not reproduce by giving birth to live young. Anoyster is buried in the shore most of it's adult life. It mates byreleasing eggs into the surf which will mix with the sperm of maleoysters. The fertilized eggs will implant into the sea until theyspawn.

Answer . Raw mother of pearl refers to the shell unaltered from the way it is removed from the ocean. It is unpolished, not coated with any preservative, and uncut. It often is sold in bulk, with all the pieces of all sizes mixed in together. You get a lot of waste when you buy it that way.
There are many ways that germs (bacteria) help us. They sit on our skin and take up space so that harmful bacteria can't live or grow as rapidly. They line our digestive system and, again, take up space so that harmful bacteria can't. They also aid in digestion. If you've ever been on an...

You don't say what they are stuffed with , which would effect my answer but Ill say rice pilaf or risotto.
Yes, all pearls come from bivalves though not all bivalves form pearls. Look at the inside of the shell and if it contains mother of pearl then the bivalve is capable of producing pearls. This holds true for both fresh and salt water bodies.
Answer . If a pearl is deemed Freshwater pearl, chances are, it is real. Freshwater pearls are the most affordable pearls available. If the pearls are described as faux, shell pearls, imitation, or anything other than cultured Freshwaters, then they are fake.. More and more vendors are popping up...
i dont really think anyone has tried to test that but if it wasn't poisonius you would find other things eating it

The function in a mollusks mantel is to help it's muchel move in the bod Located in th inside of the shell
Oysters are what are known as filter feeders; they filter microscopic organisms out of the water. They therefore do not have to attract prey. The prey is always there, in the water, carried by currents, and oblivious to its fate.
the zebra mussel was introduced in 1988 in a lake in onario.

yes why wouldn't it :D
Well if you know how pearls are formed , it is when a grain of sand or something else irritating a clam, it will secrete nacre. That will layer overtime until that intruder is fully in cased in the nacre, or what we call, a pearl. Same thing applies to the parasite, If that thing has somehow...
A clam shell is not smooth because being smooth would decrease friction between a clam and the surface it lives on. With low friction, a clam would go places it would not want to go.

Yes. It is quite possible for giant clams to latch on to your hand. They will not purposely bite you, it is instinctive that they close when they feel threatened. The clam can bite down at 225 PSI. That is enough to break every bone in your hand. My recongmindation to you is to NOT put your hand in...
Generally speaking they are very good for you. Some are toxic and some people have a low tolerance for some of them and hence are allergic.
