In parts of Monterey Bay, sulfide seeps up through the muddy seafloor. Clams living in the mud absorb this toxic chemical through their feet. The clams carry the sulfide to bacteria living inside their bodies. The bacteria use the sulfide to make food, which in turn provides nutrients for the clams. These are having size upto 4 inches (10 cm) or larger. Credit: All the Sea
