Pyura Chilensis

The Pyura Chilensis become quite a common food item within Chile. Known as nothing more than a filter feeder, these little creatures appear similar to rocks, and may be mistaken for them, too. The meat within, however, has a “slightly bitter, soapy taste” that people somehow enjoy.
