Dozens of sea slugs have been alarming residents in California’s Bay Area. Thef giant purple “blobs” turned up on the shores of Oakland, Alameda, San Clemente, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach and Richmond beaches in Northern California.
Dozens of “blobs” were have been seen in both the months of May and they are currently still washing ashore. The rare phenomenon is scaring local residents.
“They were scattered all over the beach over there. Some were alive, some were dead, some were in the seaweed. They were kind of cool looking. But then it was kind of weird because I’m like, what’s going on with our water?” Rachyl Benitez, an Alameda resident, recounted.
The current scale of the sea slugs washing ashore is thought to be the second time there has been an unusually high rate of the animals dying off in the past 15 years.
The mollusks, which can reach up to 15lbs and 30 inches long, are native to the area around cities such as Alameda and Oakland, but have begun washing up on shore by the dozens recently.
The ones recently found have not reached peak size and are about the size of a fist. Officials don’t have any precise figures on the total number of sea hares that have washed ashore.
“They are rarely seen other than an occasional one here or there,’ the East Bay Regional Park District’s Carloyn Jones said.
The East Bay Regional Park District says it is very unusual to see the purple sea slugs at this time since they normally come out of the waters during the summer.
Morgan Dill, who works for the park district, said that the phenomenon may be linked to warmer water temperatures.
In the same way there have been rising temperatures due to a significant change in the Earth’s climate, so have water creatures been emerging because of these warmer temperatures.
The giants slugs were mistaken for human organs, causing even more panic. And Because the slugs secrete a “red discharge” that looks like blood, the locals were prompted to call 9-11.
The slugs are neither endangered nor dangerous, Morgan Dill of the park district said, however, said residents should not take the slugs home.
With warmer waters, a number of creatures have been found washed up on land.
Along with the purple sea slugs, several other sea creatures have been unusually turning up. These include small tuna crabs, blue jellyfish-looking creatures and a Minke whale. The causes of death of these creatures have yet to be determined, but the rising temperatures in our waters are a huge factor to consider.
In Orange County, little tuna crabs invaded the shores of Dana Point, San Clemente, Newport Beach and Huntington Beach on Sunday.
Along the West Coast, droves of Velella velella were also washed ashore. These blue jellyfish-like creatures are also called “by-the-wind sailors” as they can be taken to just about anywhere by the wind.
Also recently, a Minke whale washed up dead along the shores of Coney Island in New York.
