I was a little worried about taking on a geoduck commission. They looked like sand monster from Star Wars, or the worms from Tremors. They are huge clams that can survive for a century buried in the sand, their siphon or neck to gather nutrients at the surface.
Next, I may have to give them a try at the seafood counter. They are supposed to be very tasty.

You do have to admire their defense system though. Their shells are too small to adequately protect them, so burrowing into the sand is a very effective way to avoid predators.
