The blob

Here is a little fella I found under the dock at the Barking Crab. It was jelly like to the touch, had a nipple like head and round.After looking it up in the National Audubon Society Guide what we have is a Blood Drop Tunicate. This tunicate is a brooder and in late summer liberates scarlet tadpole larvae. kinda like a womb in the sea.
