Description

On the afternoon of 12 Oct 2015, I received a text message from Toby Lineaweaver (Woods Hole) containing a photograph of an unknown animal he found washed up on the beach of Devil's Foot Island in Woods Hole, MA. The photo's show a soft-bodied, dark purple, bilaterally symetrical invertebrate with lobular extensions or folds over what I assumed was the dorsal side. He sent several photos (included). I noted the anterior (head) end with what appeared to be appendages in the shape of fleshy horns. My guess from the photo's was a sea hare (Aplysia). I asked Toby to bring the animal back from the island if he could. He left it in his dory at the Woods Hole Yacht Club where I found it laying in a pool of water. It was much larger than I assumed from the photos - at least 10 inches in length and a kilo or so in weight. Purple fluid appeared to be exuding from it and,based on the swirling of the water and this fluid, I realized the animal was still alive. I placed it in a bucket and transported it to the Marine Resources Center. I placed the bucket in a sea table with flowing ambient sea water. Scott Bennett reported to me this morning that it expired during the night and was disposed of. I based my tentative identification on the fact that some previous reports exist through the Gray Museum at Yale (http://discover.odai.yale.edu/ydc/Search/Results?lookfor=Aplysia+fasciata&submit=Find&type=allfields) and the general description of a very dark and large Aplasia. Following an exchange here, I retrieved the corpse and dissected out the internal shell and photographed it to add to the record.

Interesting individual. I assumed this to be a Mink Frog in the field from the obvious oniony smell in the hand. Closer inspection revealed a fairly pointed snout, and stripes perpendicular to the long axis of the legs as well as some medium blobs parallel to the long axis of the legs. The frog lacked dorsolateral ridges on the right side and had a small dorsolateral ridge on the left. The belly was grayish and the sides are strained a very pale yellow. Blobby spots in the center of the back point more to the Mink hypothesis, but the overall color seems fine for Green Frog. I think I'm leaning a bit more towards Green Frog at the moment, but that doesn't quite explain the smell. Possibly a hybrid, though no one seems to have done work to confirm how often hybrids occur. At this site, hybrids seem very likely...

A life species for me! This little squirrel was digging seeds out of the snow under the bird feeder.
