Flame Scallop

The Flame Scallop is not really a scallop: it is a clam. It's main claim to fame is the color of its flesh. The photographs are quite accurate with respect to color.

Here are the details of the "hinge".

Details of the "eyelashes".

Here the "foot" can be seen.

The "foot" can reach out and grab onto surfaces, like the side of the tank.

Details of the inside of the clam. Notice the white "bottom" of the foot. The "thread" going up and to the right attached the clam to the side of the tank. I never saw how these threads were created.

Details of the filtering system inside the clam. The clam feeds by filtering the water which passes by and eating the things which it finds in its filters.
