Masses of dead #fish wash up on beach in #California, #USA
The most frightening of the deep-sea horrors that lurk at the bottom of the ocean have nothing on the “penis fish.” Thousands of the pink, worm-like creatures were spotted washed ashore on Drakes Beach in California last week, according to Bay Nature.
Photographer David Ford was walking along the beach on Dec. 6 after a storm when he noticed a large flock of seagulls feasting on something in the sand, according to Marin Independent Journal.
The worms spanned for miles.
“I had no idea what they might be … it went on for two miles,” Ford told Vice. “I walked for another half hour and they were scattered everywhere. There were seagulls lined up the beach the whole way having eaten so much they could barely stand. A quarter of them looked like they were still alive. The rest were dead, they had a dead sea-creature smell.”
