    Scallops have eyes? Yes, yes they do. Lots of them, in fact! (What do you think they use to check out their muscles?!). Okay, so they don't have eyes like ours but a scallop's eye does have a tapeta (which is like a biological mirror) that attaches to a retina to reflect light. Usually, around 60 of these eyes line their mantle making it all the better to see you with, my dear! Source: Marine Life at About Education
