Weird video shows a clam "eating" some salt on a table

(CBS News) A little while ago we showed you a bizarre video of a rat bullying a cat and stealing some milk. It was totally weird and wacky. So let's go ahead and keep the crazy train going with an odd caught-on-tape moment of a clam eating some salt. Check it out.

It's like watching a long, pale tongue come out of a shell and start licking the table, right? The truly strange yet fascinating video was posted by YouTube user 100critical who writes:

Considerate clams flavor themselves before being eaten.

Well, it seems the "eating" is about to become the "eaten" if that description isn't tongue-in-cheek (or rather clam-in-shell, if you will). Either way, an odd and interesting video to watch.
