I found this on the beach, it is about 4 inches long and still alive, can you identify it for me?
Aphrodite aculeata. I could have written more, but my internet-provider is so useless that I have to send and pray.
Great, thanks for that, will see what else I can find !!
Also known as a sea mouse I believe!
Yes - it's a Sea Mouse. Your picture shows it on it's back. It is a Polychaete worm that is a sandy seabed scavenger. You can occasionally find them on Spring tides.
