Egg Cases



"Because they are lightweight, they are commonly washed up by the sea, often found at the strandline, the farthest point of the high tide. The egg cases that wash up on beaches are usually empty, the young fish having already hatched out." ~ Wikipedia

    1. A very common sight here on the Outer Banks. The egg cases of various species can look very similar and I'm certainly no expert. But if I had to guess, I'd guess this egg case belongs to a skate.
