Rare Blue Dragons Are Washing Up On Texas Seashores

As if we didn’t have enough to worry about right now, Mother Nature is adding something else to the mix: blue dragon sea slugs. These beautiful, yet potentially dangerous creatures have been spotted on Padre Island National Seashore, posing a threat to beachgoers who aren’t aware of their existence.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
