Check out that Sea Squirt, man. Dude looks like a clown’s heart or something. The Sea Squirt, also known as a Tunicate, usually live as solitary individuals but sometimes become colonies, each unit being known as a Zooid which sounds cool as hell. They are basically marine filter feeders with a water-filled, sac-like body structure and two tubular openings, known as siphons, through which they draw in and expel water, but of course you knew that. Most adult Sea Squirts are permanently attached to rocks or other hard surfaces on the ocean floor. Anywho, Sea Squirt.
