Watch A Clam Use His Foot to Get Back in the Water

(Video Link)

Earlier, Alex posted a video of a clam "licking" up salt off of a table. As it turns out, the poor clam was actually trying to use its foot (they don't have tongues) to climb back to safety. Here's what it looks like when the creature isn't just seasoning himself for someone's dinner.

I just have to point out that that is NOT a clam. It is a cockle (very common in the Pacific Northwest - - never tried eating one, but I always heard they are edible).
