Laid out along the benches were sheaves of notes, diagramming the echinoderm's organs, the nomenclature beautiful and strange: ampulla, pedicellaria, tube-feet, madreporite, radial canal, ring canal, stone canal.. " I fidgeted with sturdy tweezers, laid out like cutlery to break the delicate harmless creatures apart.
