“Can you hear that?” Exactly that’s the sound of the clam using it’s beautiful body structure to move live in it’s coral reef home. Clams, have you ever seen one? Imagine yourself with one. They may not be pretty but they sure are amazing organisms .
Clams are an interesting thing. They live in a home just like we do.But the clams live in a home also known as a habitat . Once a clam finds a good home it stays there for as long as possible. There are many species and types of clams. Some live in freshwater. But most of the time clams live in the ocean or sea. The reason for that is because the clam has the coral and the bacteria to soak up. Although clams are mostly found in the shallow end of the ocean or sea. Clams are known to have to most boring life and there habitat is a part of that. That is one reason why you always find sea shells (also known as clam shells) on the shore. If I were a clam I would probably sleep all the time 24 7.These interesting organisms stay at the bottom of the ocean so they are protected by the movement of the waves. 75% of the time you will find thousands of clams in the Great Barrier Reef. An interesting fact about clams is that they are usually found anywhere in the ocean.
A fascinating fact about the clam is that they are not all one size. Some clams can be 5 inches but some clams can be 5ft. The giant clam especially can be up to 1.2 meters and even weight up to 500 pounds. The clam has 2 soft muscles on the inside of the shell . This organism also has a fragile shell. The clam can be all different colors such as orange, tan, brown, gray, yellow, and even a little pink. This organisms shell is made out of mineral called calcium carbonate.
does the clam roll in its sides to move it rocks back and forth. And once the pressure from the waves flip the clam over the clam has a hard time rolling back into place. Clams find it very hard to move as scientist would say .For an example when I went to Hawaii my family went snorkeling and we say at least 35 clams and when a big came tumbling towards us 99% of the clams flipped over.
Lies a clam on the ocean floor
Wet and damp it sees my smile
its great big shell looks like it smiles back,
How beautiful the ocean, clams, seahorses, sponges too
Sits the clam so pretty
with a cocoa colored shell
You've been around for so long
It feels like 500 years
Oh wait, it has been
Go Fish Summary
My aquarium is filled with colorful beautiful and outstanding fish and decor to go along. The theme of my colored filled aquarium if little mermaid. I chose this theme because of the beautiful decorations they had at the stores. We chose fish with beautiful scales and many different colors. I had decided on this choice of fish because of my taste in the color blue, pink, purple, orange, and red. The decorations to go with my fish are gravel and most importantly the characters of little mermaid. Surprisingly I found those characters at petsmart! I found Ariel, flounder, Ursula, and a shipwreck that looks like the ship Ariel found in the movie. The number of fish I got are 6 fish. They each include beautiful colors. In total I spent for my is $46.90, for the decorations I spent $89.60. All together we spent $207.30.
