Does the Sea Pineapple remind anyone else about a human heart?

For those of you curious about the Pistol Shrimp's name, look it up, it's awesome.

Ruby-Throated Hummingbird vs Ocicat
Common Leopard Gecko vs Zebra Shark
Pufferfish vs Pistol Shrimp

Not going to vote on sea pineapple vs canary because I legit can't decide on that one. Birds are cool and all, but come on, a sea pineapple.

Alright, so the reason I nominated the sea pineapple in the first place. Firstly, yep, it's an animal! It's part of a group called sea squirts, which act a lot like sponges in that they are sessile and mainly filter feed to get nutrients. Sea pineapples are notable among the squirts because they are also a delicacy, particularly in Korea (and Japan I think), so I am kinda interested in seeing how one tastes. But regardless, it's much, much more closely related to vertebrates like us, fish, and birds because it contains a notocord, and thus belongs in the phylum Chordata just like we are. So basically my point was to challenge everyone's ideas of what an "animal" can encompass.

I'm gonna rep the giant armored fish I nominated as well as an underrated dinosaur. Also normally I wouldn't vote the coral but Aedes aegypti is a nasty mosquito that carries a lot of viral diseases, not just yellow fever, and one that really likes to bite humans, so I have no love for it whatsoever

-Just went with my feeling for the first choice.
-That coral looks neat and no way am I voting for a mosquito. Eek.
-Rawr!
-Birb! Really though, the Peregrine Falcon looks fierce.

c'mon now, don't criticize the choices other people make. Remember, this is all supposed to be in good fun. My vote is obviously just randomized, idk what criteria AT is using but I'm sure he has his reasons.

I'm sorry, it's just that mosquito is universally hated by people, including me, and it kinda baffles me, but I'll be not criticizing anymore.

Lol I don't mind. Truth be told I kinda felt the same way about the coral. I know it's an important filter feeder and all that but otherwise it basically just sits there. I thought a bug, even a horrible pestilent one, is much cooler.
