Ever wondered what a colonial sea squirt looks like?

On our way to the Scottish Hebrides we visited spectacular Lochaline, opposite the Isle of Mull. The Darwin200 dive team has been documenting the changes of wildlife in UK waters as we voyage north. We documented colonial sea squirts (illuminated here by torch light), ethereal jelly fish, massive 60 cm wide, spiny starfish, countless sea urchins, and beautiful cup corals!

It’s this one! A colonial sea squirt!
