sponge and thorny oyster


I googled thorny oyster, and most of the pictures show the "thorns" coming from the shell. This has a smooth shell and the "thorns" coming from the mantle:confused: It's really cool looking, whatever it is. I was planning on getting rid of the xenia on the topside of the rock it's on, now I'm not so sure about doing that.

If you look at the link below there is a picture of what it looks like you have. Scroll down towards the end of the page and there is a question and answer about it. They say it is a type of Jewel box oyster? Closest I could find. Very cool!
