Mussels are blind. Mussels are immobile. They are essentially  living water pumps, filtering food out of the water as it passes. How these creatures reproduce and colonize new territories is one of natural history's most surprising stories. Subterfuge, mimicry, and enticement; there's a lot going on under the surface. The complexities of the reproductive behavior of freshwater mussels are just now being revealed to science. New discoveries are made every year.

Astonishing adaptations.
