Killer Clams (Webisode 14) Back to Webisodes »
Giant clams are no myth. In New England, people love clam chowder, but in the Pacific, some of the clams are as big as a suitcase! On a trip to Micronesia, Jonathan goes in search of Giant Clams. These clams are so big that people used to think they caught people…and it almost looks like they could. It turns out that the problem is too many people eating the clams.
