The manila clam can be found on the beach. They are buried under the sand, but their location is shown by a small black dot appearing that shoots out a small spray of water, followed by a water spurting sound effect. The dot will disappear after a second, but the manila clam will still be present. Using a shovel the player can dig up the manila clam.

The manila clam (Venerupis philippinarum) is a species of saltwater clam found in coastal regions of Asia. It is an important bivalve in aquaculture and is grown throughout the world for food and its often colorful and beautifully shaped shells. As well as humans, the clam is eaten by crabs, sea stars, fish, seabirds, otters, and raccoons. The clam has been introduced in coastal systems throughout the world and has sadly had a negative impact in many areas where it out-competes native clam species.
