Hippopus hippopus, the bear paw clam, horse's hoof clam or strawberry clam, is a species of large saltwater clam, a tropical marine bivalve mollusk in the subfamily Tridacninae, the giant clam morphological group.

It is a species of giant clam living only on coral sand, with the opening facing towards the sky. The shell is more angular than the ones of its cousins from the genus Tridacna, and often maculated with reddish once clean. The mantle is opalescent yellow-green, with slight linear patterns.
