It's been an amazing week here in the Cornish rock pools with some exceptionally low tides.
For the first time ever, I had a close encounter with a metre-long shark in the shallows. Video and pics in this week's blog post. http://cornishrockpools.com/2015/02/22/ ... -cornwall/
I'm sure you all know the feeling of coming face to face with an exceptional wild animal. Awesome!
It was a Scyliorhinus stellaris, the larger of the two cat shark species that come inshore here. It's often known as the nursehound or bull huss. They lay their eggs on the shore. Beautiful animals and not at all aggressive, so no need to cancel your summer rockpooling holidays.
I'll post again soon with some of the other wonderful creatures I found this week.
