In Images: Strange Scottish Sea Finds
If you need to get your fill of weird and wonderful for the day without getting wet with muck diving, a new Nat Geo gallery of the strangest critters found in the Scottish sea might do the trick.
Try not to get the chills from a rare “fish without a face,” which is actually a link in the evolutionary chain between invertebrates and vertebrates. The Amphioxus has a nerve cord instead of a backbone and crawls along the ocean floor without a brain.
Other strange pics include horse mussels, sea-loch anemones and a variety of other invertebrates. But we’ll let you check out the pics for yourself.
