Can anyone identify this ,we found several washed up at Dungeness .The skin resembles chicken skin but slightly rougher.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I believe Its a type of coral, sorry i don't know its formal name but i have always known it as "Dead Mans Fingers"
Seconded. It's a soft coral/ Alcyonarian, Alcyonium digitatum , as in http://www.nhm.ac.uk/natureplus/message/27537 etc.
Thank you both.It's such an odd thing because it almost looks like human flesh!
Anyway thanks again.
