As some of our readers noticed, I was off the island for a couple of months this winter (I was in Berlin, trying to improve my German). When I returned home last week I noticed that someone had left what looks like a tube sponge in my yard by my front steps.
The item is flexible, but not especially fragile. Can any of our readers provide a more precise identification of this marine specimen?
