This may just be the weirdest thing you've seen today! Thousands of these marine worms, called fat innkeeper worms—or "penis fish"—washed up on Drake's Beach after a recent storm. Try not to be alarmed by the thousands of plump, pink, inch blobs caught flopping across a California beach last week. They are just some homeless penis fish.

Thousands of 'penis fish' washed up on a California beach

'Penis fish' wash up by the thousands on a California beach - CNN

CNN A horde of large, fat worms descended upon a central California beach, spooked out of their burrows by a bomb cyclone. These phallic organisms are quite common along the West coast of North America, but they spend their whole lives in U-shaped burrows under the sand, so few beachgoers are aware of their existence.

Would the candiru fish really eat your genitals?

Thousands of creatures resembling penises have washed up on a beach in California. The pulsating creatures are fat innkeeper worms, or Urechis caupo. Although they are a type of worm, they are widely referred to as the "penis fish". The worms bury themselves deep beneath the sand, but recent storms have uprooted them and Drakes Beach, about 50 miles north of San Francisco, has been covered in the creatures.
This fish is called the candiru and is a member of the genus Vandellia. The candiru is found in the Amazon region of South America and is a type of catfish. The fish is actually parasitic. It uses spines located on the covers of its gills to attach itself to the gills of other, larger fish.
