TRUTH !!
The Atlantic Bay Scallop, for instance, has about 100 small eyes in the tissue along the edge of it's shell. They are very different from our eyes, however.
Scallops actually have tiny mirrors at the backs of their eyes, which help them pick up as much light as possible. The eyes come in many colors, such as orange, yellow, red, and purple.
