In order to get to the bottom of the disturbing clip, The Washington Post called in a professor from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to break down the video that all of Facebook is talking about. She explained that it’s a razor clam and that what we’re seeing is the creature relaxing “its muscles, which causes the shell to open…then it squeezes water into the bottom of its foot.” She also said that the strange moment at the end, when the clam spits up a black liquid is just “the clam expelling the junk in its system.”

The video, which was captured in Northern Oregon, has been watched over 10 million times on Facebook. Some people had some pretty creative remarks, like Jess Callaway who said, “I wasn’t expecting the near perfect arch of sand to come rocketing out the behind. I gotta tell ya, I’m not sure I’m the same person anymore.”
