    Diver photographs 'Cookie Monster of the Sea' | Photo is courtesy of ©Mauricio Handler/Nationalgeographicstock.com | It was a job well done by the photographer, who said the Cookie Monster was actually three tube sponges that had fused together over time. (Sea sponges, while they may appear to be plant-like, are actually multi-cellular animals that attach to the sea floor, or to reefs, and feed by filtering particles from currents.)

    Had the same experience. Acquired a carrier shell with what was said to be coral attached but I believe it to be glass sponge.
