My name is Daphne. Recently, I decided to diversify my jellyfish blog and add other invertebrates of the sea (octopus, starfish, sponges, cuttlefish, urchins, etc). You can find all the different types in my TAGS page. This is a queued animal blog. None of the photography is mine, unless stated otherwise. Send your requests to my ask, or just leave a question. Enjoy your stay.

medusajellies is my secondary blog…

…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.

Sea jellies are not just brainless blobs. They include a huge spectrum of gelatinous zooplankton. And they sure are easy on the eyes!

Here’s a basic Sea Jellies 101.

I can get to the tutorial up by next week.

I hope you’ll be patient with me. They’re pretty fun. :3
