Ming The Clam

It feels strange to be concerned about an Icelandic clam when there is so much devastation in the Philippines.

Yet when I read the article, I wondered how many ancient shell-fish (not that they are fish) have already been consumed?  I don’t eat the critters raw, but I have eaten, and prepared from scratch, chowders and soups, and other dishes,  with clams.  Not once did I ever consider the age of my ingredients. :-(  Bear

Ming the clam was the oldest animal ever. Then it didn’t die.  Ming was killed.

    I’m saddened by reading about Ming the Clam in the same way I’m saddened when I read that 150-200 species become extinct every single day. Many of them most likely haven’t even been discovered yet.
