Baby ray grown in sandwich bag at aquarium

A young thornback ray has been saved at Macduff Marine Aquarium in Aberdeenshire - after being allowed to grow in a sandwich bag.

The ray was trapped in its egg case - known as a mermaid's purse - and would have died.

Aquarium employee Frazer Mackay peeled open the case and put the ray, still at the embryo stage, in the bag.

The ray is now a month old and the aquarium said it is "thriving" in the sandwich bag in a quarantine tank.

A bag is basically what a egg case is so it was a very "common sense" thing to do.
