This doodle was the inspiration for the jet bush, an aquatic organism to feature in The Gorilla With Twenty-Four Heads, the second book in the series. Water is drawn in the two large sacks in the center and expelled at select branch tips for locomotion. Water passing through the tubes is filtered for nutrition. This doodle is very simple compared to what I now have in my mind for this creature. I now envision a basket-star-like animal covered in small, photosynthetic leaves. Water is drawn in the modified madreporite and expelled through the terminal tube-feet.
