Geoduck Clam

<span class=

<span class=

I had found a rather funny looking shell fish called GEODUCK over the net which bears resemblance to the human penis.The geoduck , Panopea abrupta, is a species of very large saltwater clam found in the northwest coast of US and Canada.The shell of this clam is large, about 15 to over 20 cm in length (about 7 to 9 inches), but the extremely long siphons make the clam itself very much longer than this: the "neck" or siphons alone can be one meter in length.Geoduck is one of the longest living creature in the animal kingdom with a life expectancy of 146 years with the oldest recorded at 160 years.There are a variety of ways to cook geoduck. It can easily be blanched, stir-fried or cooked up in chowder.

Anybody out there know where i could buy Geoduck or Elephant Trunk Clam in Malaysia? Please let me know as i would really like to sample its unique taste.
