    Saw this on the bottom of a zoa rock. Theres about 3 of them/it. Any ideas?

    Struggling to get the camera to focus on it. Looks like a growth more than a critter

    Almost like its glued on the rock They differ in sizes so i doubt its an egg so possibly a sponge then i guess. Its almost the inverse of how a golf ball looks. Dimpled but outward dimples

    Sycanoid sponges indeed. Check WWM reference.
