Hi there,

Got this little one today. I was told that it is a clam, but they did not know exactly what type. Iím looking to find out what exactly it is! Itís about 5/8 of an inch, she said it stays really small.

Thanks for any help!

Looks more like a Scallop to me. Maybe even a Mussel?

It is some kind of mussel. Filter feeder that eats suspended algae. Cannot give a better ID with the pictures you posted.
