There have been reports of cuttlefish bones being washed up on the east coast of Scotland after the recent stormy weather and today found two of them on the beach at Lower Largo.
In spite of its name, the Cuttlefish is actually a mollusc, belonging to the same class of animals as squid and octopuses. The cuttlebone is an internal shell which is porous to gas and air and used as a buoyancy regulator.

Saw this little stranded starfish on the beach and thought it looked different from the common starfish. From seashore guide identified it as a sand star. It is usually buried in the sand in the lower shore but sometimes washed up after gales which we have had recently.
