Clams,[1][2] also called oysters,[3] are enemies in Yoshi's Story. They act much like underwater Warp Pipes from Super Mario Bros. 3 by blowing air upwards, though clams actually stop after a certain amount of time. Clams are usually found around sea cacti. Clams are rare, and even then they appear only in Lots O'Fish.
