Mermaid’s purses


Product Description

Mermaid’s purses: These are the cases that protect the developing embryos of some species of sharks, rays and chimeras.

They are made of collagen and are commonly found, washed up, on beaches once the young fish has hatched.

They always seem to me to be from an alien world. There would have been a time in human history were their origin would have been a mystery – they may as well have come from aliens – I rather like that thought.
