Hawaii Danger #1: Portuguese Man o’ War

So I was at the beach yesterday and I came across this most familiar but unpleasant sight.

Man o' War

I don’t know that much about them, all I know is that their sting hurts really bad and they come when the wind blows onshore. Yeah, I got to teach my little brothers about them so they won’t get hurt when they see one again. Here are a couple websites that might be helpful if you want to learn more!

Blue Bubble

We saw 3 on the beach that day! If you ever see one, DONT pick it up! Even though the bubble is harmless, the clearish blue tentacles could be wrapped around it or close nearby!
