Sponge - A beautiful Haliclona sp. specimen from Chek Jawa, Singapore. Haliclona permollis showing multiple chimneys of a single individual sponge.

The Sponge Docks

k Welcome to the "Sponge Docks" in beautiful Tarpon Springs, Florida My sister and I took a walk down the main street of the sponge docks for an arts and craft show and what a cold morning it was.
