Learn the anatomy of this freshwater mussel without actually dissecting one! One side of the chart contains photographic images of a clam with the shell opened, with the gills removed, a close-up of palps and mouth, the heart, and glochidia at 60X magnification (found in female gills). The other side features photographic images of a clam’s exterior, a clam with its gills removed and visceral mass opened, and a valve’s inner surface. Each image has important parts numbered and labeled for easy identification. Also included is a one-page guide explaining the chart in further detail. Both 8-1/2 in. x 11 in. sheets are included together in a protective sleeve and with holes pre-punched for inclusion in a binder.
