Via @nakaweproject Ever seen one of these funny looking pouches? Did you know that it is actually a shark egg!?
.
Around 30% of shark and ray species are oviparous, meaning that they reproduce by laying eggs that develop outside the body of the mother. Shark and ray eggs are particularly distinguishable because of the large protective casing around the egg. The shape and size of the case is different depending on the species though. Egg cases from various species are often nicknamed 'mermaid’s purses' because of their pouch-like shape - but egg cases from Port Jackson sharks are very distinguishable because of their unique spiral shape!
.
This video from @sanibelseaschool shows a tiny shark fetus developing inside the egg case. These may sometimes wash ashore on beaches, so if you find one containing a fetus it’s best to return it to the water as quickly (and gently) as you can!

What I love the most about macro photography, underwater or land, is the details that you get to capture and really see. Shrimpfish, or razorfish, are common for me (and swim away fast 😅) so I've never paid attention to their beauty and intricate patterns until now.

Last month we released a green sea turtle named Chilli from our rehabilitation centre back into the wild.
.
At our rehabilitation centre we provide medical and supportive care to sick or injured turtles.
.
We also take in weak or physically challenged hatchlings, and allow them to grow bigger and stronger before being re-released in the wild.
.
The majority of turtles that get admitted have been found entangled in discarded fishing gear at sea, often known as ghost gear.
The entanglement can result in flipper amputations meaning they are unable to dive for their food or swim against strong currents.
.
Being around these turtles everyday really makes you aware of how severe the problem of fishing/plastic waste is in the oceans and of the knock on effect it has on marine life.
.
Fingers crossed that Chilli is doing well out in the open water and he has made some new turtle friends...good luck buddy!
💚🐢💚🐢💚

Happy weekend everyone! Here is some therapeutic inky gloriousness from a recent attempt at some blue whales. Haven’t painted for so long I’d quite forgotten to make the ink behave, so I wasn’t overjoyed with these initially. I’ll see how I feel once I’ve added a few details 🐋
