Forget singing mermaids and talking sponges, when it comes to unusual creatures under the sea, sea squirts deserve a special mention. Sea squirts are filter feeders, sucking in water through a body opening (called a siphon), straining out plankton and other edibles, and then expelling the water through a second siphon. At birth, they resemble tadpoles, swimming around looking for a rock to call home. When they find one, they latch on and begin to absorb their own internal organs, turning themselves into beautiful, passive, literally brainless creatures.

D) Papaya
