My organism , the clam mainly eats plankton which is a tiny floating organism drawn in and expelled from water sucked in through two tubes called siphons. These siphons also are used for respiration along with feeding. These animals have cilia beating on their gills which move water taken in through the siphons while another set of cilia strain the food. Along with the diet, clams also have an outstanding life cycle.
These excellent creature’s reproductive steps are when a female sheds eggs into the water where they are fertilized by a male clams sperm. Then larvae is developed from the eggs. The larvae swims briefly before settling on the bottom permanently. The biggest of the clams,a giant clam, produces more than 500 million eggs at a time!
