== == A young clam is called a larva, spat, or a littleneck.
The clam has two siphons. The excurrent siphon (which expels water and waste out of the clam) and the incurrent siphon (which brings oxygen and food and water into the clam).
A clam is called a filter feeder because it sucks in water and food (plankton and other microscopic creatures) through its incurrent siphon. Then, it filters the water with its gills and the waste water is excreted through the excurrent siphon. Then, the labial palps push the food into the clams mouth and the clam starts eating.
The original phrase was "happy as a clam at high tide." Clams live in the sand beneath the ocean. When the tide goes out, they are left without any water, and have to survive on what they store in their holes. So when the tide is high, a clam is happy and has plenty of water for food and oxygen.
