Feb 11: Man-o-war

There were hundreds of these man o wars on the beach when we took our walk yesterday. I tried not to step on them even though they were dead but would sometimes miss some of the little ones. They sound like bubble wrap popping when you step on them. EWWWW! You don't want to step on them barefooted because the poison can still hurt you.

  1. I got stung by one in Hawaii once and it HURT! I wonder why there were so many dead ones washed up on the beach?? Did something happen to them or is that their natural cycle?
