Scallops Do Have Eyes

May 14, 2019 6:07:00 PM

OK. So I published fake news. In our last newsletter, I used a reddit post:

It’s super weird that clams, oysters, mussels and scallops don’t have eyes, but not as weird as it would be if they did have eyes.

Turns out scallops are super weird. They have up to 200 eyes. Here are the details.

And in case you are wondering, clams and oysters have light sensing organs.

I stand corrected. It is also amazing that I got that feedback from 4 people within 30 minutes of sending the newsletter. Thanks for reading.
