I named this creature The Pog. It lives in a bog. It has stabilizer fins below and feeding tentacles above to capture large swimming animals. The ridge is likely a sensory organ, probably for pressure/sound. Reader Challenge: What phylum should it belong to? Is it a cnidarian (related to jellyfish and anemones)? Is it an echinoderm (related to starfish and sea cucumbers)? Is it a mollusk (related to squid and snails)? Is it a chordate (related to fish and sea squirts)?
