Worm-like Creature on Samal Island, Philippines

Can anyone identify this creature or at least tell me what phylum it's in? There were hundreds of them during low tide and would retract if you touched them.

Need help identifying this creature

My father had this image for a long time and I've been trying to identify it for months yet with no results, most results show it as velvetfish, scorpion fish or even a flying gurnard, this photo was taken somewhere at Philippines or Indonesia

Does anyone know what this is ? I found it washed up on a beach in japan.

I was looking for some rocks to take home when i came across this weird looking creature. I accidentally touched it too - hopefully he’s not poisonous 😭

Found this thing at black sands beach in Northern California. Anyone know what it could be?

I’ve found a lot of bones since we’ve been here but this takes the cake, it seems like a mostly intact skull, but we have no clue what it could be

Can anybody tell me what’s going on with these guys?

What’s happening to these little clams types? Are they dying out of the water?

Looking for the name of the creature that keeps growing its body parts over and over again.

I saw it in a video once. They explain that it keeps growing its body parts next to the original over and over and it was walking along the bottom of the ocean. In the video, they showed the example diagram as a baby that keeps growing its limbs over and over. My poor paint picture is an example of what I can remember it looking like. I really want to show my friend that this creature exist and should definitely be one of the strangest, if not the strangest, sea creature there is.

I am getting closer or at least marking off more things that it is not. It is not a type of siphonophores.

I got warm with this article https://www.livescience.com/marine-worm-with-100-butts.html but it is not a worm.

It can grow 100 torsos/heads/limbs if it lives long enough though. So you can imagine it growing taller and taller as it walks the bottom of the ocean floor as time progresses.

Thousands of Little fish in waves on Oregon coast

So I was walking along the coast and then nocticed something between my toes...looked down and saw around 1000 little tiny fish (?)

Each wave had thousands of whatever they were, anyone know what it could be?

They didn't seem to bite, but maybe nibble a tiny bit.

Oregon coast.

It seemed like they went under the sand also

Does anyone know what type of Jellyfish this is?

I got stung by this jellyfish in Northern Mexico. I was walking through low-tide and it wrapped around my foot. I dragged it to the beach and grabbed a stick to pry it off. 6.5/10 pain. I had dots across my foot from where the tentacle was
