Casio (Shellfish)

The girl eats the foot of this shellfish as soon as her grandmother pulls it from the sand in the shallow waters of Tondol beach in Anda Island.
The granny calls this edible mollusk as “casio”. So it’s casio for their dinner (sans the tails) by cooking it in the pot in low fire to make a soup of it from its own water.
