The giant clam gets only one chance to find a nice home. Once it fastens itself to a spot on a reef, there it sits for the rest of its life. These bottom-dwelling behemoths are the largest mollusks on Earth. They can be 47 inches long and weigh up to 400 pounds. On this clam you can see the rows of strongly projecting scallops on it's shell. The mantle’s outlying edges that are often fluted gold or brown with many iridescent green, blue or purple spots especially around the mantel’s edges.You can see the siphon rimmed in blue in the middle. Location: Arefi Birie Island, Arefi, Selat Sagawin, Kabupaten Raja Ampat, Papua Bar, Indonesia. January 2020.
