Today I took a walk on the beach and the entire beach was covered with 100o’s of Portuguese Man of War. They are babies. They have their babies on the water’s edge. The huge number of these things are frightening since they deliver a terrible sting. They say that even a dead one on the beach can deliver a sting. At first I did not see any with bubbles, so I thought it was a jelly fish-bad enough, but when I saw the bubbles and the trailing tentacles, I was pretty sure it was the Portuguese Man of War. I came in an googled them along with images of the babies and now I am sure. I have some pictures that I took below of what I found.
I read that these travel in bunches of 1000. They get very big and have tentacles that hang down 165 feet. Guess Leo will not be going in the water for a while.
