Description

Now this was a bit of a surprise.
Swam out when I lifted a rock. It then tucked into a space nearby. Very weird things. Habitat shot last. That's the spot he was in before I flipped the rock.

~4cm long
Lower intertidal.

No idea what this skeleton is. Seems to have webbed feet and a long tail.

The last photo has a circular item for scale - it is 52mm outside diameter.
