Mysterious Sea Creature


k1873

I had never seen this creature before and I have been unable to find out what it is, so if any of you have any ideas please let me know.

It was about 15cms long and was swimming on the surface in a small harbour on the south coast of Yamaguchi in August.

Its coloration was more vivid than these photos show, and its movement can only be described as elegant..

  2. Great photos Jake. Are you aware the little buggers will bite if handled and the bristles will sting you. I found out the hard way in Indonesia.
