    Unhappy White thing on clam......

    I noticed this white thing on a clam today, and am not sure what it is.
    Any ideas?
    Removing it would be hard as it is attatched, and I don't want to stress the clam unnessesarily as I've only had it about 3 weeks.

    Interesting.... I have no clue myslef.....

    Does the clam look to be in good health?

    I doubt you could get it out as it would probably close on you.... Keep an eye on it.....

    Tiffany,
    Watch your clam for any signs of stress. Also you might try and summit this picture to the forums at http://www.clamsdirect.com/ they are very helpful.
    BTW it looks almost like a small star, hopefully it's not eating your clam. If it is a star it may hurt your clam when you remove it , as stars have a firm grip.

    It's not a star, but it has a firm grip.
