However, there was some other wildlife. Like these:
There were lots of them on the beach -- I saw about 10 or 12 over several days. they are, I believe, the rarest of the sunfish, the Slender Mola, Ranzania laevis. These two are lying on a bier of sea grass leaves. As you can see, they are rather odd fish, like a hatchback car with two rather odd handles at the rear. I did see one that was still tinged with red.
And even odder is that they are tropical/temperate fish, ending their lives washed up on a southern cold current, far away from sun-baked oceans. There tragedy was to get swept south on the warm Leeuwin Current until they reach colder climes and die ... of the cold. There more sensible siblings can grow to 1 metre long.

And then, above and below, there were the ants. Everywhere.
