Palm Trees at Night

Stalked Crinoids are those bizarre echinoderms that look like bony starfish with twice as many arms, resting on sticks.

Their arms are feathery so they can catch tiny specks of food....

Which makes them look just like palm trees!

So if you ever happen to find yourself stranded in the deep sea with nothing but mud and volcanic rock formations for company...

Head out to the nearest crinoid, squint a little and you'll be convinced you're relaxing on a tropical island!

Tropical islands have their cold, foggy nights, too, you know.

Those look like they should have fairies sitting under them! Very wet fairies.

Haha! Yeah. I kind of feel like they would be hiding under them to shelter from the rain but I don't that works underwater!
