McCosker I.d.ed this for Rebecca over the phone. Alison found it. It pushed itself back down into the sand...
Burrowed into the wet sand with just its head sticking out. Very aggressive!
Id'ed by John McCosker. Thanks, John!
My son found the animal flopping on the sand next to shallow water. He helped it into the water and it rested there for about a minute (photo). Then it wriggled backward into the sand, with just its head sticking out. This was during a low tide after a high tide and large waves.
