Treasure from the sea

Red billed gulls eating a frostfish Lepidopus caudatus.. They are known to strand themselves on gently sloping sandy beaches on calm frosty nights; hence the name. They are normally deep water predators. They have no scales and a mouth full of big teeth. They strand on sunny days too. They can be found on New Brighton Beach where people out walking in the early morning after a frosty night can find them, take them home and eat them, but only if the gulls don't get there first. They are apparently very good eating but I wouldn't want to try this one!
