Meet ‘Aber-clam Lincoln,’ a 214-year-old clam
(CNN) – Scientists in Florida have found a 214-year-old mollusk, based on the layers on its shells.
It’s been alive since 1809, so they named it “Aber-Clam Lincoln” after former President Abraham Lincoln who was born the same year.
They said it’s an ocean quahog clam, a type that can live more than 200 years.
