In case you think the year 2020 was crazy, then you are wrong. That year was full of craziness. I know that the year was full of more craziness. In my previous articles, I have dwelled on some crazy stuffs and animals that have happened in the larger part of last year. Again, today in my extraordinary article, I am going to feed you with some mind boggling event that took place. I’m going to talk about a clam that was recorded feeding on rocks. I

t is well known that any animal will feed on something that will supply his or her body with nutrients. Invertebrates also follow the same line of order as they will have a variety of foods to choose from but I am pretty sure that rocks would not be part of them. In 2018, a type of a shipworm shocked the whole world when it was seen feeding on a rock.

This provoked scientists into doing various research concerning the same. Many of them came up with a wide array of suggestions trying to give the reason for the unusual behavior of the clam. Some of them were thrown into a state of limbo and were unable to really explain whether these rocks were of any nutritive value to the organisms. Among those who gave suggestions, were the local women who argued out that the rocks were vital to these organisms especially the lactating members of the group.

Another group made a quite sensible deduction. This group said that clams were doing this behavior not because of any benefit that they will get but because the rocks were in the way of their holes or rather burrows. Instead of making ways away from the rock, they prefer eating out a way through these rocks and excrete the rocks particles later. It is quite a mesmerizing behavior.
