Eledone cirrhosa

First pic of the specimen I was given for my project by the st. Andrews Aquarium in Fife. Beautiful specimen! Died in the octopus tank and the manager decided to preserve it just in case. It was in 50% formaldehyde/water, steeped it for 2 days in water, I think Dundee Uni's going to keep it for a teaching aid! So even in Death its doing good!
I uploaded a couple more pics, but they haven't shown up yet: I think I put it in the wrong folder by accident, was supposed to be in the Species one... D'oh!
