The hinge ligament is attached to the adjacent edges on one side of the two halves of a clam shell. This allows the clam to open and close like a door.
Hinge ligament :)
This is from Wikipedia:Bivalves have a shell consisting of two asymmetrically rounded halves called valves that are mirror images of each other, joined at one edge by a flexible ligament called the hinge.
Some stoves are referred to as clam shells because they resemble the form and function of the shells of a clam. They are compact with hinge joining two halves.
A bivalve. A clam (A brachiopod)
I think it's bivalvular
its the doorhinge of the clam (where it excretes poopoo)
they are hinged together by a ligament called a rotoy
No, "clam" is a casual term for a mollusk; a filter-feeder type of freshwater or marine animal that has two calcareous shells (valves) joined near a hinge with a flexible ligament. Arthropods are invertebrate animals that have an exoskeleton (external skeleton), segmented body, and jointed appendages (legs), such as spiders (arachnids) or lobsters (crustaceans).
The oldest part of a clams shell is the outside part of the hinge. This is because the clam starts at the hinge and grows outwards.
its uses gilles for respiration and they can only move by shooting water through their hinge and propelling forward
i like to learn about the symmetrical line
The oldest part of the clam shell is called the umbo. It is the portion closest to the hinge and is found by following the growth rings to their center.
It means that a shape is exactly like another shape if you flip it over or turn it around. Think of the two sides of a circle or the two halves of a clam.
You will see a clam.
They are invertebrate. They have a foot that is big and serves as the anchor. The digestive gland has a pee green color ok the bottom of the clam. They have an anterior and posterior muscle. They are bivalved meaning they have two shells connected by a hinge. The gills are in layers on top and on bottom and there is usually four gills.
No, the manila clam is saltwater.
YES! I think... They can also clam up! -Happily!
a baby clam
No a Clam is a mollusk.
Clam predators. Often other molluscs, such as snails or another clam will make a hole in a clam shell.
