'Weird' dead thing found on Outer Banks


Recommended Posts



A “weird” dead thing washed ashore up along North Carolina’s Outer Banks on June 1, and the National Park Service is asking for help identifying it.


The spiny object appears wormlike, but with a tight crust of ivory-colored thorns.


It washed up on the Shackleford Banks at Cape Lookout National Seashore and was found by a passer-by, the National Park Service said in a Facebook post.


“Weird things are found on the beach,” the park service said. “We need some help identifying this object. … So far, we’re stumped as to what it might be.”
