Eye Love Scallops

While sampling the tidal flats in Provincetown today, we came across a bay scallop hanging out. Scallops have many tiny blue eyes lining their mantle and are able to actively swim along the bottom. This scallop was hanging out with some Amethyst Gem Clams (Gemma gemma) and a hermit crab paid a visit.
