Default Sea Mouse

That is a sea mouse (partially digested or crushed by bass jaws). Its a fairly gross benthic creature that I have seen off of the east coast before. Like a sea urchin on top and a blood worm on its belly. I'd pass on it but I'm sure they get eaten often as they aren't going to escape. They creep along.

Good find!

Thanks!

I will be counting on you to identify all future weird creatures I find in the ocean. Nice to have a marine biologist on call...
