Giant Clams, Kingman Reef Photograph by Brian Skerry, National Geographic Giant clams, Kingman Reef, 2007 Swimming through the waters of Kingman Reef is a feast for the eyes: Gardens of giant clams clutter the bottom, their neon-colored mantles glowing vibrantly, and are juxtaposed with brightly hued mushroom corals ranging in size from silver dollar to dinner plate. (From the National Geographic book Ocean Soul by Brian Skerry)
