•Junior Editor Quiz on" SHELLFISH TO TAKE IT EASy- PIGoING BOYS? ARENO HELP QUESTION: What kind of life does a clam have? ANSWER: The average clam probably leads the easy-going life shown in the top picture, but of course a good many of them get into trouble, like the unfortunate ones in the lower picture. Not only human beings, but other animals like clams for food. Starfish prey on them by pulling their shells apart. Certain other shellfish drill holes In the clam's shell to get at its soft body. But if he escapes all such enemies, a clam has an easy life. He gets the necessities of living by lying buried in the sand. As the tide comes in, the clam sticks up a tube called a siphon and through this draws water into his body, which is well protected by the twin shells. Like other living animals, clams need oxygen; they have gills which take oxygen from the water. The water is also filled with various food particles such as tiny animals. These the clam strains out and uses for food. He is all set. On the other hand, who would want to be a clam?
