Clam Mimic (2)
The Clam Mimic, also known as the “Bivalve Deceiver,” is an extraordinary and deceptive creature that defies the conventional notion of mimics. In the world of Dungeons & Dragons, where mimics are often associated with chests, doors, and other inanimate objects, the Clam Mimic represents a peculiar twist on this concept.
Did You Know? Clam Mimics are renowned for their ability to mimic not just the appearance of clam shells, but also the sounds and smells associated with them, making them exceptionally adept at luring unsuspecting prey.
