Its smallest cousin, Tridacna
crocea, commonly known as the burrowing giant clam or boring giant clam, is the least threatened, as it remains relatively abundant in the Indo-Pacific area despite ongoing fishing activities.
The geographic range of Tridacna
noae extends from Kiritimati in the Central Pacific to Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean to Taiwan (Huelsken et al.

Shells of the 'Giant Clam' Tridacna
were recently identified during dredging activity from the shallow subtidal zone (up to 10 m deep) off the coastline of Abu Dhabi, on the southern shore of the Arabian Gulf.
Based upon preliminary observations it appears that tridacna
shell bangles might be more commonly associated with the more ostentatious Bronze Age burials (Chang pers.

clams are one of the highlights of the Paris exhibition; large tridacna
squamosa shells were used as cosmetic receptacles and intricately decorated inside and out with Egyptian scenes, featuring lotuses and beautification rituals.
Found mostly in buildings, but also in caves, under Tridacna
shell on ground, and in webs on vegetation.
