Giant Clam

The giant clam is the largest clam species in the world. In the ocean, they can reach a length of 4 feet. Their bright colors are partially the result of a symbiotic algae known as zooxanthellae, which use sunlight to produce food for the clam. These clams can be found in a wide variety of colors including purple, blue, and green.
