Giger Fossil

This is a photo I took at the Houston Museum of Natural Science of a big (about  4' x 5') sea bed fossil with a bunch of prehistoric animals that appear to be halfway between starfish and octopi.  Unfortunately I can't recall the name of the animal.  But all I could think of when I saw this thing was that scene in Alien Resurrection when Ripley is dry-humping the alien hive - an absurd scene from a absurd movie, marking the point at which the franchise had truly jumped the shark.  Fortunately this fossil dispenses with Ripley and only includes the hive.
