Looking at this picture reminds me of the Shell Petrol Logo. Thinking about petrol reminds me of the recent petrol price hike etc etc.. Mmmmm... Let's not go astray. Back to the main topic, talking about cockles.

I thought the cockles were death initially when I took the photo. Who knows... as I mentioned earlier on in my other post, not only the clams became alive, the cockles too..
Papa Cockle started to open his mouth; showing me his smooth "tongue" (still can't resist calling the "foot" as tongue..). I guess all the cockles were sleeping (or dreaming? initially) and now they had wake up after the sweet dream..
Mama Cockle was more gentle and lady like. She only opened her mouth slightly :)
Baby Cockle halfway opening his mouth. Trying to communicate with his other cockle brothers/sisters or cockle friends? or ... was he yawning ???
I like this photo the most. This uncle Cockle opening his mouth big big and protruding his tongue out. Can even see the saliva drops .. Yucks!!
Uncle Cockle closed his mouth but still with the tongue protruding out. This uncle cockle had big tongue. (Macroglossia?)
Side note : Cockles are hermaphroditic and can reproduce very fast. Consumption of raw or partially cooked cockles has been linked to Hepatitis A, so watch out !!
