…so when you send me an ask, I sometimes forget to switch the reply from my main blog. If it looks like I haven’t replied to you, just send the question again because I probably just screwed up. :P
"Boring Clam" (Tridanca corcea)
Also known as the Crocus Clam, Corcea Clam or Saffron-coloured Clam, Tidanca corcea is a species of Tridacnid clam that is widely distributed throughout the west Pacific. Like most bivalves boring clams are filter feeders and will siphon nutrients from the water around them. Despite what its common name might suggest Tridanca corcea is actually quite interesting and will bore itself into hard substrates to keep itself affixed.

I can get to the tutorial up by next week.
I hope you’ll be patient with me. They’re pretty fun. :3
