beach creature …

How would you like a tickle sunbathing on Cable Beach?

The beach sometimes turns up amazing critters. These images were of a ‘worm’ with a million legs, about finger thick, a couple of feet long and live under the sand. The first pictured here at first looked like a sea snake until up close, the legs were seen. Soon after I saw another one grab a shell like a python and drag it under the stand.

I hope they don’t get any bigger! This snail below just escaped.
