twig wrapped in deadman's finger sponge
My pleasure - and glad to see your are posting!
Go back to your spotting page for it and there is an "edit" button near the top. You can change anything you wrote. Non- processed sponges are a little stiff- feeling. A piece of acrophora coral found on the beach would just be coral skeleton - there wouldn't be much "soft" material there. Had to put on the Marine bio teacher hat there ;)
ok. karl thought it was coral. i'll make the change if i can figure out how!!
Going to argue your ID - That is a species of deadman's finger sponge. :)
