California Beach Attacked by Fat Innkeeper’s Fishes

After a massive storm on California Beach this week, millions of marine worms were encountered to attack California Beach which has disturbed the tourists a lot. This situation happens to take place when a massive and robust winter storm was witnessed in the city during the night time. And in the morning, media news warned the residents of California to avoid visiting the beach because it is filled with marine worms all around.

These creatures which have attacked the beach are the fat innkeeper’s worms. They have covered the whole Drakes beach that is located around 50 miles in the north of San Francisco. The overall appearance of the worms has been so much eye-catching as they are approximately 10 inches in total length in the U shape which gives them a shape of a penis. They are present in huge quantities on the marshes as well as beaches where they are using tunnels for catching their food.

These worms are known out to be the culinary delicacy in place of South Korea where they have some high aphrodisiac effects. It has been investigated in one of the reports that this worm is around 300 million years old and is one of the pieces of evidence of fossil animals. They have mostly preyed on the flounders as well as sharks and rays. Otters and humans also attack them. Humans, later on, eat them with fried or grilled effects.

Why Fat Innkeeper’s Attacked California Beach?

The main reason due to which these worms have compiled themselves on the beach is due to the heavy rainfall. Strong winds and storms are one of the main reasons which make them capable enough as in laying down siege to the side of the intertidal zone. This is breaking apart from the sediments and hence leaving upon the contents that are stranded all over on the shoreline of the beach.

They are generally thick at one end of their body and have a nipple-like form of body structure on the other end of the body. On the scientific terms, these marine worms are known as Urechis caupo. But most often they are known by the name of “penis fish” or even by the name of “fat innkeeper worms.”

What Eye-witness David Ford Has to Say?

David Ford, who is a photographer by profession, told the media that he used to visit the beach every one for photography. But on 6th December morning, he was surprised to capture these worms in his camera lens which were million in the total amount. He further mentioned that in the beginning, he had no idea that what these worms are actually because they were spread at a distance of almost 2 miles.

He said that I walked for around one-half mile and on every single inch, they were scattered all over which look so scary. Although the worms were not moving, which seems like they are dead. But he noticed a small movement in some of the worms which he captured in his camera lens.

These worms were called by the name of penis fish in one of the reports. The overall appearance of the worms has been so much eye-catching as they are around 10 inches in total length in the U shape which gives them a shape of a penis.

These worms have been just previously washed out the ashore in the Pajaro Dunes, as well as Moss Landing, and Bodega Bay straight away on the California coast. In one of the media reports, it has been concluded if these worms are in more high energy and if they are alive, then there are high chances that they can attack the beach in the future years as well.
