Soft Shell Clam (mya arenaria)

Mya Arenaria clam 2.2.2020-005 (Medium)

This is a small 5 x 7 inch painting of the soft shell clam that is native to both coasts of the United States.  It is a bivalve.  Fossils of bivalves have been found in rocks from the early Cambrian period–about 500 million years ago.  That was 300 million years before dinosaurs!  For more information on this painting, click here.
