    Can anyone tell me what this is?

    This picture was shot in Cozumel by our dive operator in Cozumel and asked if anyone could identify it...

    A "nest-like" structure we came across at Dzul-Ha reef...we are not really sure what it is, but are very curious! at Cozumel, Mexico.

    Thanks yall!

    I think that is a Basket Starfish... I don't know a lot about them, I've only seen one or two in the Caribbean.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    You are very lucky to see that. I have only seen a couple in 15 years. Nice picture too.
