Description

I think this may be a fish of some sort, but as I have never seen this before I could be completely wrong.

Initially thought this was a bit of seaweed floating in a still rock pool until it turned around and went the other way. When it is resting (these 2 photos show it in swimming position) the tail curls up like a spiral which is noticible when lookig down on it. We did see a couple of fins on the side (well they may be fins) but only when it was resting.

Could not see the spots or eyes until saw this photo.

Under 20mm long when stretched out.

Low intertidal zone.

Thought I would do a border control excercise today and be on the lookup for illegal immigrants trying to sneak in. Shocked to see this close to the border so after taking mug shots of the culprit I evicted it.

I think this is a moss. Second photo shows where the stems come from. I am not sure if that white flower is the same species as the long red stem plant so I have another obs with just the flower.
