Almost all of California's coast was
flooded with unusual creatures that climbed out of the sea.
Local residents and seasoned tourists face such a phenomenon for the first time.
Some tourists bypass these parts of the beach in a roundabout way, others, on the contrary, do not disdain to take the sea "aliens" in their hands.
American scientists, having carefully studied the strange inhabitants of the planet, put forward the hypothesis that they refer to salps - invertebrates with barrel-shaped bodies of gelatinous consistency.
Salps often go by the definition - pelagic shells.
These living organisms are considered the most interesting, but at the same time poorly studied sea creatures.
Despite external similarities with jellyfish, salps have much in common with the vertebrate planet inhabitants.
Tourists and vacationers weren't the only ones surprised by appearance of thousands of "jelly-like capsules" thrown out on the coast.
For example, one of the Maritime Security Service officers claims that he hasn't seen anything like it in 40 years of his work.
In fact, the excitement was not caused by the salps themselves - rare as it is, they've appeared on the sea coast before, it's more about their mass number.
One of the Sunny California residents wrote on his Facebook page: “Unusual creatures, thousands of them ashore, crunch under feet like soap bubbles”.
Some eyewitnesses say, that sea "aliens" are so multitudinous, that you can not even see the sand on the beach.
End to this story remains unknown.
Scientists are trying
to figure out the reasons for the city beaches "invasion".
