Sea Pearl GALLERYVentricaria ventricosa
The Sea Pearl is a Green Algae and known elsewhere as "Sailor's Eyeball". The Sea Pearl is one of the largest unicellular, or single cell organisms, in the world. The Sea Pearls are usually found as solitary organisms, or in small groups, attaching themselves by thin filaments to subsurfaces, or are found free floating. They are very similar to Elongated Sea Pearls which grow in tight clusters in shady areas like north side of walls, under overhangs and in recesses. Sea Pearls can grow to a diameter of 2 inches.
