Beachcombing finds at Cottesloe

I took these photos at the South Cottesloe beach this morning. Soft and squishy animals! And they don't look like something you will want to have for dinner.

Beautiful color patterns. It was soft and fleshy. No idea what it's called.

Sea squirt.
You can see the two 'holes' which let water in and out of the animal.

Sea sponge.
This one still retained some coloration. Most dead sponges I found were just light brown in color.

Sea tulips. Don't they looks like some creatures form outer space!

Sea sponge? No idea what it was.
But it had all these holes over its body. When I poked it with a stick, water squirted out of the holes.
