A unique appearing geologic formation. Perhaps a mud volcano with associated oil and gas seeps. There are dark globules in the photo that might be rising oil globules and the sediment is flecked with numerous black spots. Black material covers portions of the interior of the ring of this seeming mini-mud- volcano caldera.

A community of seep tubeworms (Lamellibrachia) was discovered at the rocky foot of the West Florida Escarpment near De Soto Canyon. These tubeworms thrive on chemical nutrients (e.g., hydrogren sulfide) seeping through the sediments below them. This tubeworm bush hosted anemones, Alvinocaris shrimp, hydroids, white octocorals seen on the tubes, and galatheid crabs and mussels (dead).
