Right now, there are terrifying jellyfish invasions in California and Denmark! OMG!

These weird creature invasions are probably linked to hot temperatures, water currents, winds… Or maybe something bigger happening somewhere in the Oceans around the world!

1. Thousands Of Blue jellyfish die on California beaches

Velella velella is a pretty little blue jellyfish living on the open ocean. Normally, this open-sea creature only washes ashore at the end of its lifespan. But nowadays, they are stranding and dying en masse on beaches in central California. So what is going on? Is something bigger happening off our coasts?

These jellyfish are also called “by-the-wind sailor.” Velellas float on the surface of warm waters, subsisting on zooplankton. They begin their life cycle in the middle of the ocean and are brought to shore by the wind before drying up on the beach.

Experts say there is nothing to worry about although it is very unusual for velellas to wash ashore at this time of year. So there is probably no larger problem in the ocean. I do believe these poor jellyfish were likely at the mercy of the weather. As they go where the wing goes!

Jellyfish are one of the few animals which we can firmly stick on the ‘terrifying’ list, without also occasionally finding them cute or loveable.
