Thanks!! That was quick. I mostly collect shark teeth but this was too neat to pass up!

 

I would certainly have grabbed it!

I find these to be very cool looking. ;)

An interesting bit that would definitely have been difficult to walk by and not pick up. Sea robins are cool fishes. Here's a photo of one from under the Blue Heron Blvd Bridge over the intracoastal waterway near West Palm Beach, FL.

They tend to be found on mucky bottoms and not pretty coral reefs so not many divers see them. Getting off the reefs and trying "muck diving" can open up a whole new world of unusual creatures. There are at least 7 species of searobins found under this bridge in an unassuming little beach that is actually a world-class diving location. ;) This pretty little one is (not surprisingly) the Bluespotted Searobin:
