Here is a picture of Giant Clams  on Kingman Reef, (  Kingman Reef  6.59200000762939 -162.735000610352  ) with their mouths closed.
near Palmyra Atoll,  Kiribati, South Pacific Ocean.  No two giant clams have the same coloration patterns, making each unique and beautiful like giant butterflies onteh bottom of the ocean.

The largest giant clam, Tridacna gigas, (known as pā’ua in Cook Islands), is the largest living bivalve mollusc.
There is  no larger bivalved animal in the fossil record, these are living giants!

One of a number of large clam species native to the shallow coral reefs of the South Pacific and Indian oceans, they can weigh more than 200 kilograms (440 lb) measure as much as 120 cm (47 in) across, and have an average lifespan in the wild of 100 years or more.

 Its range covers the Indo-Pacific oceans, but populations are diminishing  and the giant clam has become extinct in many areas where it was once common due to harvesting for human consumption.

The giant clam has been historically misunderstood in times past as the killer clam or man-eating clam, and reputable scientific and technical manuals once claimed that the great mollusc had caused deaths; versions of the U.S. Navy Diving Manual even gave detailed instructions for releasing oneself from its grasp by severing the adductor muscles used to close its shell.  Like other clams, it feeds on small organisms and algae in the water.

Hello Leo,
That sounds like an interesting story.
I have some Samoan girl names here:
http://www.ipacific.com/forum/index.php?topic=591.0

Also, there is a Samoan writer just getting popular from Samoa, Lani Wendt Young, who just wrote a book Telesa set in Samoa.
Check her blog or write to her. She is seeking a community of writers in Samoa.

http://www.ipacific.com/forum/index.php?topic=775.msg1747#msg1747

Two of my favorite names are Sina and Sefulu.     Sina means white, sefulu means 10.
One of the earliest books in English reporting on life and folklore of Samoa is "Samoa" by Turner and many names from old stories.
I have the text here:

Keep us posted about the Island connection Smiley

Hi d-r Tavita Tusitala! I live in Ukraine (I am a molecular geneticist) and I also have a hobby - I'm writing a sci-fi novel (http://spacenoology.agro.name/?page_id=4904). The story played up the conclusions of my argument with creationists and evolutionists on the site of Richard Dawkins (http://richarddawkins.net/articles/643321-the-eyes-of-richard-dawkins). Several episodes in this novel take place in our time on Savaii! Also in Australia, Pago Pago, in New Zealand. But I find it hard to write about the place where I myself was not ... I learned many things from the internet travel sites. But I have not found at these sites, all that interests me. That's the question: what is the name of the girl may have in the south-west of Savaii? In my story is very lively and clever girl ...
Sincerely, Leo Polishchuk
