Plants and animals (?) of Exumas. Just curious what the heck is this or how you call it. We don't have them in BC.

In the right corner - conifer srhubs - long soft needles, no trunk, more like a shrub, but can grow up to 30 ft high.

Marine plant (I suspect - animal), looks like a bunch of orange penices. Decent size, about 10" long, dark opening at the top.

A mound, 1-2 ft in diameter, always with this dark spot on the top - there are hundreds of them in shallow bays. I think, it's something dead, like a root ball after some see weed may be.

Fruit resembles mango, I checked - no, not a mango of course. Probably not edible.

PS: Q to Moderator: first 2 photos were 300-400 KB, and came out trimmed when posted. So I had to post just links instead. Is it some feature of this interface, limiting displayed size? Even if the actual file is on another server?
