OK, but what is it ?

My guess #1: a spiro agnew
No, that's a vice president

========
My guess #2: a spyro dragon
No, that's a game character

========
My guess #3: a spiro nudibranch
No, never heard of that.

========
OK, I give up.
What's it called ?

PS. Here's a link to some nice pics of some real nudibranchs

I haven't clicked the link because I wanted to give an honest but uninformed opinion.
Like pretty much anyone who has a letter published in a newspaper.

I say, if it's that pretty then it's dangerous.
It eats things, or poisons them and then eats them.
Or it lashes out unexpectedly and kills things. And eats them.
Or lays eggs in them. Which hatch and then eat them from the inside.

It's an eaty thing, basically.

Those filaments look like they would catch plankton. So I'm guessing some kind of starfishy thingy.

It looks to me like a costume worn by a dancer in the Mardi Gras Parade in Rio.

Aren't we all?

Hey, Cali I loved the photo.
I wouldn't say I'm morbid. I just know nature. Mostly from pictures
And I was right, wasn't I?
Poisonous.

And yes, I am very much an eaty thing

Watched a lovely film about responsible farming of piggies yesterday.
As part of a hand-carving training session.
Oh such cute, cute pigs!

Did it stop me carving up a cured chunk of one of them?
Did it hell; one of the reasons I love pigs is that they taste so good. Actually I'm not that big on ham - too salty - but I do love me some pork, and bacon, and sausages, and pork scratchings, and pig racing and on and on and on...

Starfish don't eat plankton, they eat clams, oysters, etc, They are carnivores.

I think it resembles a sea pen.

Nice, I can totally see it. That's some great associative thinking, there.
