What Are These Slimy Creatures All Over The Jersey Shore?
Have you seen these guys? They are everywhere!!!!! I swam among millions of these gelatinous, translucent, jellyfish like blobs this weekend...did you? No, they are not jell-o shot leftovers from some rager, they're called salps. As you might imagine, my kids were full of questions...are they alive? Can they sting us like jellyfish? Will they go away? Here are the answers!
