Clam Shells

A clam is a marine bivalve mollusk. The shell consists of two (usually equal) halves. Clams differ from other bivalves because they burrow in sediment. (Scallops can swim while clams, oysters and mussels attach themselves to substrate.) Fresh ones can be eaten raw, steamed, boiled, baked, fried or made into clam chowder. Yum! Clam shells make great display pieces and are fun to collect.
