Portuguese men o' war wash up in UK

3 posts in this topic

Beaches in Cornwall have seen a record number of Portuguese Man O’War washing ashore after strong winds. 

Sightings of the sea creature which deliver a painful and sometimes lethal sting have increased to “unprecedented” levels along the county’s northern coastline, according to the Cornwall Wildlife Trust. 

The influx caused a section of the Perranporth beach to be shut for several hours after more than a dozen were found.

They aren't actually jellyfish. Each Portuguese man o' war is a colony of tiny creatures called zooids.
