Just when you think you’ve seen it all. This little guy is actually a sea sponge! The photo was taken by underwater photographer Mauricio Handler, while diving in the Dutch Caribbean.

  2. sea is for cookie, that’s good enough for me

  3. Does it go ‘om nom nom nom nom nom’ if a little fish swims inside?

  4. Omigerd, haha. This is like when something grows funny, right? Like a potato that looks like a bunneh?

  5. If I thump its head will the eyes go all googlie.

  6. Thanks for recognizing that sponges are animals, not plants.

    Starts baking extra dry and crispy laver bread and cockle biscotti, so sponge can get a nice crunchy cookie for once.

  8. First thing that popped into my head!

  9. This triggers my trypophobia! *frantically scrolls*

  10. This reminds me more of one of the blue yip yips than cookie monster.

  11. I have never seen those guys before! I LOVE THEM!
