The (Really) Big Oyster

Sep 26, 2009

Giant Chinese oyster--webI knew oysters could get a lot bigger than we tend to see them, but I thought that meant a foot long and fiftenn years old. This sucker, from a Chinese museum, must have more than a hundred. Thanks to Dr. Loren Coen, Director of the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation Marine Laboratory, for this great photo.
