Nephtheis fascicularis | ©Delahegue Arnaud 
This striking form belongs to the tunicate Nephtheis fascicularis, better known as Lollipop tunicate, Lollipop coral, Blue palm coral, Blue lollypop or Blue cauliflower. 
Their color varies from green to blue to purple. They feed on plankton and detritus. Each stalk contains a oval-shaped colony of tunicates, which contain zooids [1].
This species is found in the Central Western Indo-Pacific [2]. They inhabit shallow waters of lagoons and coastal reefs, at depths of 7 to 13m.

"Boring Clam" (Tridanca corcea)
Also known as the Crocus Clam, Corcea Clam or Saffron-coloured Clam, Tidanca corcea is a species of Tridacnid clam that is widely distributed throughout the west Pacific. Like most bivalves boring clams are filter feeders and will siphon nutrients from the water around them. Despite what its common name might suggest Tridanca corcea is actually quite interesting and will bore itself into hard substrates to keep itself affixed.

At work they said my Easter Bunny was creepy looking, then I considered my inspiration…

"Troglodyte Dragon"
The little worm things are her children, btw. They’re born pipa frog-style out of the fleshy “mane” in her neck (it doesn’t have nerve endings, so it’s not painful for her when they hatch). Sometimes they fall off, but the dragon is a good mother and will put them back in their cozy home.

Broken antique celluloid doll face with eye mechanism still attached. The lead weight (visible at the bottom) falls back when the doll is placed in a lying-down position, causing the eyes to “sleep.” This one also appears to have a side-to-side glancing motion (“flirty eyes”) - I’m not sure how that part works.

This is that church in &#8216;Nawlins.
