Two dangerous jellyfish-like creatures have been found in the western waters of the province.
Marine association Promar confirmed that a Portuguese man-of-war was washed up on an Adra beach last Tuesday (June 13). A second one was spotted in the waters off Almería’s popular Zapillo beach on Saturday (June 17) by a sailing instructor.
A Guardia Civil patrol boat removed the specimen, but marine experts warn that more are likely to be found in the coming days.
The potentially lethal Portuguese man-of-war is not a jellyfish but a colony of individual animals which cooperate to catch prey.
