Clam is 4-5″ when fully open!
The Tridacna Maxima Clam also goes by the common name of the giant clam but it’s really the small giant clam since the true giant clam is Tridacna gigas. The colors on this clam can be simply outrageous and extremely vibrant. Common mantle colors are blue, green, gold and turquoise with various mantle patterns. They are found all over the Indo-Pacific often in large congregations where there is high light penetration.
