    Friday Trivia: Sea Squirts

    Forget singing mermaids and talking sponges, when it comes to unusual creatures under the sea, sea squirts deserve a special mention.



    Sea squirts are filter feeders, sucking in water through a body opening (called a siphon), straining out plankton and other edibles, and then expelling the water through a second siphon.

    .

    At birth, they resemble tadpoles, swimming around looking for a rock to call home. When they find one, they latch on and begin to absorb their own internal organs, turning themselves into beautiful, passive, literally brainless creatures.

    .

    Interesting....the first photo makes me think of a wreath made with deco-mesh. I don't think I'd try eating one of these.

        Oh my! Those are beautiful. I can picture a fabric line based on these creatures.

          How interesting and colourful.

          Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

          Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.
