A strange sea creature came ashore on North Carolina’s Hatteras Island. Danielle Coulombe Sisco of Vermont spotted the weird-looking sea creature during a visit to the Outer Banks, which she later posted to Hatteras Island Facebook group.
“I am in love with Hatteras island and a big sea marine geek,” she wrote. “However I cannot identify this jellyfish or jelly fish like creature? It doesn’t look like a nettle, lion’s mane, or cannonball. What? Oh, what could this be?”
Sisco says the sea creature was about 9 inches across “roughly the size of a volleyball.”
Ideas of what the sea creature maybe have been offered by commenters on the Facebook Group. One comment said, it “looks like a ray and a jelly had a baby.” Multiple commenters said it’s a Lion’s Mane Jellyfish. What do you think it is?
