Cunjevoi (Pyura stolonifera)
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
On Sunday, some friends and I went to Hastings Point, NSW.
We were walking along the beach and spotted some of these interesting creatures. We weren't sure what they were - whether they were plants or animals. In the meantime, I have found out that they are Cunjevoi, or "Sea Squirts".
They were really awesome and would randomly squirt out seawater after waves had passed over them. Here you can see my friend's finger pressing onto one of them, causing it to squirt some water out. They were very intriguing.

Yeah, they're "Pee-Pee Anenome's" of course ;}}
Interesting action shot, good details.
I used to love going around sticking my finger in those when I was a kid, I recommend everyone give it a go, it has a funny effect. TFS and bringing back the memories. :)
