When the scallop’s shell is gaped you can see two rows of tiny, bright blue eyes. These eyes aren’t the simple light sensitive eyes that most mollusks have, they can also sense motion. So a crab or fish trying to sneak up on one and grab some flesh before the shells close will be seen before it gets even close. And if the scallop loses an eye it simply regenerates a new one in its place.
Scallops are my favorite bivalves precisely because of the alien beauty of their rows of sapphire, eerily-humanlike eyes.

Wow, they just rocketed up my list of favourite animals! This looks like something you’d find on a final fantasy monster. o.O
Oooh, games should totally get on the case and make Mimics with this eye configuration ^_^
If you think these are cool, look up box jellyfish and starfish eyes! (Also, the tip of every spine on a sea urchin functions as part of one big compound eye)
Not only are scallops lined with eyes, but they can swim!
They swim by rapidly clapping their shell, exactly like in Spongebob. Here’s a video:
A ridiculous silly animal
