A place to discuss and discover the many organisms that inhabit our oceans.
My brother and I went on a night walk at Virginia Beach and found some shark/skate egg cases! They’re about three inches long, not including the little tails. I’m hoping to get an ID for the species they came from.
Thanks in advance!!
the bright orange one. north coast california. thanks all! 🙏💗
It’s National Ocean Month in the U.S. and World Ocean Day was last Thursday. I’ve been painting lots of ocean life to celebrate! I thought you might enjoy seeing this harbor seal mom nuzzling her pup while hauled out on a beach. I love seals — they’re such good moms.
I don’t know if this fits, but this is the only place I could think of to ask this. I have heard that moose are natural prey animals for orcas and don’t know if that is true. One of my buddies then asked about what would happen if a Blue Marlin went after a diving moose. That brings up the question of; Do marlin ever live in the same water as Moose? Would it be possible for there to be a moose attacked by a marlin? This is honestly a big joke that ran wild and I could not find any decisive answers. Thank you.
I found it in some tidepools off the coast of Washington.
Sharing on behalf of a friend. seen at Copacabana beach, New South Wales, Australia. I’m not sure if it’s a plant or a marine animal. She said it felt squishy like a sponge.
