Old giant clam for sale. Found in Montana
Hello everyone,

I got a Tridacna gigas or giant clam for sale if anybody would be interested? (Thank you for the help in identifying it Paul Monfils)

A little back story on it is it was found just outside Belt, Montana on a ranch. Was walking around with my father when we spotted it. At first we thought it was just a cool looking white rock until we started digging it out to find out it was a shell. I believe he had it dated, maybe carbon dated, but not entirely sure. I also cannot recall how old it is, but if you could only guess when the oceans covered the area of Montana.

Anyways, the shell is roughly 12 inches x 6 inches. I can get an exact measurement if needed.

Just let me know if you are interested,
Seth

Hi Seth,

Actually this species never lived in Montana.  It is from the Western Pacific and Indian Oceans.  I apparently failed to mention that in my last correspondence.  So humans must have been involved in transporting the shell to where you found it.
