Redrawn from Trueman (1968). cally repeated contraction and relaxation of the pedal protractor and transverse muscles initiate protraction of the foot (Fig. 12Bi). • As the foot protrudes the shell valves begin to close by contraction of the adductor muscles (Fig. 10Bii). Some water is expelled from the mantle cavity, which helps to loosen the sand and facilitates the movement of the foot.
