Found this tag on the beach -- I am wondering if anyone knows what animal it came off of? Says "Jumbo" size on the back, about 1.5" long, with a stout pin. A really big fish? Salmon? Great white shark? Harbor seals and sea otters nearby, and really close to Ano Nuevo so it could even be an elephant seal...?
(Yes I'm going to mail it in!)
