BOLO For The Portuguese Man O War Fish Spotted Over The Weekend On The North Carolina Coast
The start of another beach season in North Carolina has ushered another timely visit from the Portuguese man o’ war, a predatory creature found in the Atlantic, but not as prevalent as its close relative, the jellyfish. Over the last weekend, officials at Cape Lookout National Seashore spotted more than one Portuguese man o war stranded on the sand by the receding tidewater.
