Wow, great shot! We often see these things on our shores too. We believe they are cephalopod egg capsules.Here's a bunch seen on some sponges in Jul this year.http://www.flickr.com/photos/wildsingapore/2660663628/
We get loads of those washed up here. Like Ria, I was always told they were cephalopod eggs or more specifically, octopus eggs, but I've never seen them in any reference books so I was never really sure.
Hi ChaiIf you don't know - what chance have I got. They never wash up where I am (700m above sea level).If they are Octopus eggs, (as seems to be the consensus) are they empty, dead, or just the shells?Interesting.Denis
Thanks Ria, Alan and Denis.They are soft to touch. And they look like some white stuff packed within some whitish sausage casing. Also, they reminded me of a type of noodle back home, called "lo shee fun", literally translated into "rat noodles".
