We love to explore rock pools and today we came across this beautiful sight. I never recommend touching or moving any kind of wildlife. Unless you need to. As the tide went out we found four of these tide together but had managed to find themselves stranded high up on the rocks. So I moved them to a deep rock pool. These are the live egg cases of the nursehound shark, although when I looked after them we called them bullhuss shark so you may know them by that name or by the greater spotted catshark too. It is a species of catshark which can grow to to 160cm in length. I have registered the find with the Shark trust. If you find any mermaids purses, live or dried, take a photo and register it on the shark trust website. It is important that that we record findings to see how our sharks are doing.
