Rare Blue Dragons Are Washing Up On Texas Shores
As if we needed another thing to be scared of this year, Texas is now being invaded by dragons. First Covid-19, then murder hornets, and now dragons. But don't head to your underground, fire-breathing monster-proof bunker just yet. These dragons are exactly what you would expect.
The rare Blue Dragons are being found along the banks of the Padre Island National Seashore. No, they don't fly or breath fire, they are tiny, very cool looking sea slugs. However, they do pack a powerful punch. The Blue Dragons are typically only a little over an inch long. They can be found in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans.
Now here is what makes them scary - Blue Dragons eat Portuguese Man O' War, which are like a jellyfish, and have a sting so strong they can kill a human. So that means that this little 1 inch long Blue Dragon is deadlier than one of the deadliest known sea creatures.
Wildlife experts say that if you are along the coastline and you find a Blue Dragon, it is something rare that most people will never see. However, if you see them, you should keep your distance and do not pick them up. Their sting is just as bad out of the water as it is in the water. As for us in Amarillo, we have zero threat from this little creatures, but it is something to keep in mind if you head to the coast this summer.
