Caption: Ink-spot sea squirts (Polycarpa aurata) on a coral reef. Sea squirts are primitive sessile animals with tubular bodies. They feed by circulating water through their bodies, filtering out plankton. Ink-spot sea squirts, which can reach 15 centimetres in length, are found in the Indo-Pacific region on coral reefs. Filmed at Raja Ampat, West Papua, Indonesia.
