How do clam worms reproduce?
They sniff each others anetama, which releses the pheromones, as a mating display. Then they sexually repruoduce. And then the female releases her eggs. in the dirt and then they die.

Answer Clams may be male, female or both (hermaphroditic) depending on the species and the particular stage in its life cycle. For example, the hard clam (quahog) begin…s its life cycle as a male, then later on may become a female. The various kinds of cockles found around the world are all hermaphroditic as adults. There is no easy way to tell a male from a female clam. Fortunately, either sex tastes equally good, which for most people is probably all that matters in this regard. Quahogs, like other clam species, reproduce through a spawning process in which females release large numbers of eggs into the water, while males release sperm. Fertilization takes place in the open water. Females can release from 1 million to as many as 24 million eggs at one time, and spawning may continue for several months, depending on the water temperature and the availability of food. A single female may release up to 60 million eggs in a season, of which only a small number will become fertilized and grow to become adult clams. Once fertilization takes place, the young clam goes through a larval stage where it is carried by waves and currents. Eventually it develops a shell and sinks to the bottom. Using its muscular foot, it can then move about the bottom to some degree. At this point in the process, you may observe a white, frost like coating of young clams along tidal flats in areas where spawning took place. A single handful of this white mixture would contain thousands of tiny clams. Most would not survive, but some always did, as evidenced by the fresh supply of clams we find each year.
They do reproduce... asexually.
It depends on what type of clam wormo you are referring to. Aquatic clam worms live in the bottom of shallow ponds and lakes. Terrestrial clam worms live in the ground, i.e. e…arthworms.
Earthworms are hermaphroditic, which means they have both male and female reproductive organs. It still takes two to make more worms. See Related Links.
They are alike because they are invertebrates and they are different because one has a shell to protect itself from predators and the other doesn't have anything to protect it…self from.
You can get it on soda seas,but not clam waters.play soda seasenter the mini cave were the last cream soda wasbump into the top corner of the mini caveand the worm should fall… if not bump into it againthere you have it by maxeymurphy
Worms and Clams are both invertebrates but extremely different in terms of its physical features. In terms of physical features, Worms doesnâ??t have a hard shell instead… a soft body while Clam does have shell for its protection.
both have no feet by ali
clams and earthworms are very different because an earthworm does not breathe through gills or by absorbing oxygen through their skin but all these things clams can do but cla…ms can not live on wet or damp places like some worms can do and earthworms also are segmented worms that is how they are different.
When they are in the ground.
No there is no worm in clam water I did my reserch but there is no worm you need to go to soda seas to find the worm you pick up the worm go find the yellow fish named Fluffy …he will bite the worm now you can take it and drop it in the net or you can find the big fish also known as the Mullethe will bite Fluffy who is biting the worm you take the fish and put it in the net
They don't have jointed legs or an exoskeleton. Arthropods are all armoured, leggy animals, such as centi/millipedes, crustaceans, arachnids and insects. Nothing wormy there, …save for their larvae. The clam worm does seem to have legs, but those are actually tufts of hair-like appendages, not true jointed arthropod legs.
