Blue Creatures Are Invading California Beaches

Amazing Creatures

Tiny invaders are storming the beaches in Southern California. The scientific name is Velella Velella, but they are commonly known as by-the-wind sailors. They are cousins to the Portuguese man o’ war, and have still sails on the top in order to catch the wind and ride the ocean waves to their next location. According to the Wildlife Trust, by-the-wInd sailors use their “stinging tentacles to prey on young fish and other small animals while it travels.”
