Who got caught on camera deep under the sea?
SpongeBob SquarePants, or at least, the cartoon character’s real-life doppelgänger, along with a dead ringer for his sidekick, Patrick.
“I normally avoid these refs..but WOW. REAL LIFE Sponge bob and Patrick!” tweeted marine biologist Christopher Mah alongside an image of the aquatic pair on Tuesday.
He added, “Scientific names: Hertwigia (sponge) and Chondraster (starfish).”
SpongeBob and Patrick are famously best friends in the Nickelodeon show. But in real life, Chondraster stars are carnivores that are known to eat sea sponges, Mah told Business Insider.
Let’s hope this one goes for a Krabby Patty instead.
