Default Engine mounts look different (right/left)

I was changing my oil underneath my 2011 WRX 5dr yesterday and I noticed something strange with the engine mounts - they look significantly different left to right. I understand that it may not be abnormal, but I wasn't able to find pictures of stock engine mounts anywhere online, and I wanted to get the community's opinion if they're okay. Looks like one has a rubber boot around it, and the other does not. Thanks for any input!

That's normal. The passenger side one has a little extra protection due to the heat from the exhaust.

Thanks so much for the reply. I suspected it might be, but it's good to be sure.

Can you elaborate? Looking at the physical mount, everything looks solid.

Regarding what BlackFighter said, I can see why it looks like it's slipping, but looking at it underneath my car I would be surprised if the rubber boot around it wasn't designed to go on the inside of the metal "cup" on the left side of the picture.

Ah you're right - that's the shield.
