Yes, some types of crabs eat clams.
You can have some asparagus on the side.
the white part that is rubbery
the very rubbery part inside the shell
A Mollusk has an outer shell, siphons, that bring water in and out of there bodies so that they can get oxygen and give off carbon dioxide. Hope that helped
Oysters are known for living in groups. Oysters are commonly found  in brackish water like bays in the United States.
no, they dont like papa johns pizza or any pizza
Oysters can sometimes have a pearl inside which is worth some money. Therefore, this pearl represents success and the mattress represents the way you get to success. You can't open a oyster on a mattress because it is too soft, so that means that you have to work hard in order to be successful. I...

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.
Ok. Abalones clams and mussels are molluscs.If you notice the meaning of molluscs is any invertebrate of the phylum Mollusca, typically having acalcareous shell of one, two, or more pieces that wholly or partlyenclose the soft, unsegmented body, including the chitons, snails,bivalves, squids, and...
Yes they are if they are not you can get sick
A coral reef is home to many ocean organisms, starting with the  coral itself. Many kinds of fish also live there, such as trigger  fish and clown fish. The reef is also home to sea anemones, sea  urchins, moray eels, and starfish, along with many more.

Clams eat plankton and other microscopic things but you can feed them popcorn I would recommend that you pop the popcorn before you give it to the clam because a popcorn kernel is like a rock to us and them so make sure you pop the popcorn first and make sure the popcorn doesn't have ANY butter. It...
Believe it or not, clams eat tube worms and planktonic stuff or plankton. FYI, Not from Spongebob
very good question. im sad that nobody has an answer.
Yes, you can freeze clam chowder.
no it can not be POSINING it just makes your stomach hurt if your ugly.
No, they only have a set of ganglia.
It is hard to determine a clam's lifespan because they vary greatlybetween type of clam and living condition. The oldest species ofclam is the quahog clam which can live to be more than 400 yearsold. The typical lifespan for a clam is between 5 and 20 years.
Bluff Hill In Napier is famous for its product 'Bluff oysters'
A scallop is a shellfish with 2 hinged shells valves.Scallops move around by opening and closing their valves rapidly.
you put sand in it and wait for a long time
Creatures that can eat clams include humans, bears, otters, birds.
  I say its the snail.  
The heart is located on the terminal end of the shell.
An oyster grows its shell from the calcium carbonate mineral. The  shell helps the oyster stay hydrated and protect it from prey.
    Clams have the most complex heart of the mollusks, with 3 chambers.
  Integrated Taxonomic Information System (ITIS) records the species name as Crassostrea gigas kumamoto a subspecies of C. gigas. However there are some who believe it should be listed as a separate species, since it is very different from the other C. gigas in physiology and morphology with the...
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...
i dont really think anyone has tried to test that but if it wasn't poisonius you would find other things eating it
Yes and no. They can and do not choose what they eat but filter out  whatever passes by them in the seawater in which they live. Their  diet may be plant or animal.
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.
An ugly barnacle encrusted rock.this is not all true ugly is an infrence so that's not accurate. but they do look like a rock. they look like a black sedimentary rock that has been polished down.-Jacob
    I only have three but here they are!  1.there are about 100000 species of mollusks.  2. An octopus has 3 hearts.  3. an oysters shell is made of calcium.
Not all sharks eat clams. The ones that do are the bottom dwellers  such as the angel shark, zebra horn shark and woebegone.
no they are not

No, they're molluscs, like slugs and oysters.
They do pee, so the awnser is yes.
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 wedges...
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.
70.8 grammes. Which is 156% of an adults recommended intake (19-70 years). 156% means all of your intake plus another 56%.
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...
Normally most use a muscular "foot" to drag themselves around, siphons are often used for digging and the shell itself can be opened and closed to force movements like burrowing or swimming. there are several different kinds of these creatures and each has a unique method adapted for survival.
It pollutes the water with the hard shell and all that. The main reason why oyster fishermen should not chop up a starfish is because all the chopped up pieces of starfish will each grow into another starfish. So when the oyster fishermen think they killed a starfish, they really made new ones which...
The Giant Pacific Chiton is easily the largest chiton in the world; up to 13" long, 5" wide but there are other species that are 2 inches in length
There are several different species of sea creatures that have shells, and some grow to larger sizes than others.
The clam's shell has growth rings on them. All you have to do is count. Clams grow slightly bigger each year as they age. The put an extrabit on the edge of their shell to accommodate this and you canestimate a clams age by counting the ridges of this shell addition.
They are filter-feeders, which means that they feed on plankton.Clams most commonly feed on plankton. Clams are filter feeders.  They draw in water using an incurrent siphon. It's gills filter out  the food and push them towards a mouth on a layer of mucus.
Jews who eat only kosher food do not eat shellfish. Biblical qualifications for edible fish to be kosher are they must have fins and scales, and shellfish do not.
They are types of clams
An oyster can weigh about 1 to 3 ounces without the shell. When  weighed with the shell, an oyster can be 112 grams or more  depending on the size.
Black, Brown, Purple, Pink, White, and there is Blue. (sorry if that wasn't what you were looking)

Yes. Shellfish defecate. But it is not like human faeces .
Mussels attach themselves to rocks and other structures on ocean and lake floors with byssal threads. These strong threads, sometimes called beards, are emitted as a liquid that hardens in the water. Source: http://www.ehow.com/facts_4925405_mussel-facts.html
It belongs to the phylum Platyhelminthes.
Some protest the "oldest animal" designation, saying it should go to certain corals that grow together to form colonies. By this reckoning, the clam would be only the oldest non-colonial animals.
No a clam is not an insect it is a mollusk.
Yes , an oyster is a mollusk , a grouping with many various characteristics. Squid, clams, scallops, and starfish, etc. are also mollusks. They fit into the definition of invertebrates because they do not have a spine or backbone. . Additional interesting fact about oysters: . The oyster is...
some oysters live in freshwater. some live in saltwater
Some type of white wine, I think.
The mantle is the body wall that covers the mass and creates the  shell of the clam. It resembles a cloak because it extends beyond  the main part of the body and forms flaps.
