A note[edit]

What language is the word "pa'ua?" I assume some polynesian language; note however that Tridacna gigas is certainly not found in Hawai'i.

I am also adding a redirect to Giant Clam from Tridacna. Eventually we should have a separate Tridacna genus page that links to each of the seven (?) species. A colleague of mine works on Tridacs and hopefully she can provide me with the neccessary info/images to set this up.

Clamity[edit]

On Hamilton Island, 27 June 2007, a five-year-old boy was injured by a giant clam. The mollusc clamped down on the boy's finger, almost severing it. A plastic surgeon operated on the boy for three hours, and said he was lucky to still have his finger. (Courier Mail, Friday 29 June 2007, p16, written by Janelle Miles)

I read this in the paper this morning, and I thought it was significant enough to be put in here. I don't know how to put the citation though, so could someone help me on this? --58.179.103.179 00:00, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

made a start for you, one thing the reference needs is the title of the article, i couldnt find it on the courier-mail website. also, it would be nice if the article verifies the species as tridacna gigas. --PopeFauveXXIII 08:11, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

yo, i can't do this but[edit]

someone needs to revise this page to the last edit before 1/11/2010, which deleted a bunch of info and also seems to be promoting an america's top model contestant - unless the giant clam habitually pursues modeling careers, in which case i apologize to all giant clam-kind.
