Washed up on the beach - Can anyone identify?

Postby cjohnson » Sat Jun 26, 2010 12:35 am

My family and I were on vacation at the beach (Myrtle Beach, SC, US), and found this washed up on the beach. Does anyone have any idea what this is?

Looks sort of like a hunk of store-bought meat. My dad brought home one like that once.
It is naive to think that the whole universe must conform to the sciences devised by the inhabitants of a single planet.

Could this be a sea squirt?

It does look quite a bit like a pineapple, but I think you'd know right. Is it a turtle shell? If not, who knows. Looks like it could be something rotten though...
