A phallic-looking phenomenon took over a Northern California beach last week after a strong storm uncovered thousands of fat innkeeper worms - colloquially known as penis fish - leaving them stranded on the sand.

The pulsating creatures are fat innkeeper worms, or Urechis caupo.

'I've heard my share of imaginative theories from beachcombers, equivalent to flotsam of a wrecked bratwurst freighter'.

This is where the worm's "fat innkeeper" nickname comes from. "Within a beach or mudflat, it digs a U-shaped burrow extending a few feet in length but no wider than the worm itself", wrote Parr. Although the worms are technically neither penises nor fish, they are widely referred to as a "penis fish".

Other marine life benefits from the worm's burrowing skills including clams, other worms, crabs, shrimp and even a fish called the arrow goby.

Jenkins tweets 'best news ever' after release
Giants head coach Pat Shurmur confirmed Friday that Jenkins refusal to sincerely apologize was the reason for his release. Shortly after the release, Shurmur indicated that the cornerback's lack of contrition led to the decision to move on.

The toothless worm uses its spatula-shaped limb for feeding and swimming in its seaside habitat, Parr explained.

Consultants have discovered proof of those creatures in historical past, as there are U-shaped burrows relationship again 300 million years.

They dine on micro organism, plankton and different smalls particles, which it captures utilizing "slime nets" which might be consumed as soon as they've caught sufficient meals with it.

Urechis unicinctus, the species found in East Asia, is a delicacy in countries including South Korea.

It is usually served with a savory sauce produced from sesame oil and salt or a spicier dip consisting of vinegar and gochujang. "The worm circulates water through the tunnel, trapping food in the slime net".
