A book by Jean Sprackland called Strands ‘A Year of Discoveries of the Beach’ inspired a search for Squirts, and Sea Mouses, and all the other coastal beings that live beneath our feet, under our noses, within reach of our fingertips. I have to be honest and admit I never knew that such exotic creatures as Sea Squirts existed (Haze did, would poke them squirtily awake as a girl)
A YouTube clip of a Sea Anenome sashaying away is the basis for the little vid below. What a sexy suggestive mover. A dance done without legs!
