US: Nightmarish Sea Beast With Bloody-Looking Mouth Washes Up on San Diego Beach

Mexico sends some minors to US to get coronavirus vaccine

  Mexico sends some minors to US to get coronavirus vaccine SAN DIEGO (AP) — Scores of Mexican adolescents were bused to California on Thursday to get vaccinated against the coronavirus as efforts get underway across Mexico to get shots in the arms of teens. Mexico has resisted vaccinating minors ages 12 to 17, in part because the government focused on older adults believed to be more vulnerable. Mexico also has not had enough vaccine supply for most of its minors, who account for one-third of its population. The country this month is preparing to start vaccinating only teens ages 15-17.

A sea creature described as "the stuff of nightmares" has washed up on a beach in San Diego. The foot-long anglerfish appeared at Black's Beach and was spotted by local resident Jay Beiler, who took photos of the creature and sent them to NBC 7 San Diego.

"I have never seen anything quite like this before," he told the broadcaster, saying he goes down to the beach on a regular basis. "I've never seen an organism that looked quite as fearsome as this."

Rittenhouse Photo Reveals Where Trump Keeps Bizarre Rushmore Sculpture

  Rittenhouse Photo Reveals Where Trump Keeps Bizarre Rushmore Sculpture SIOUX FALLS—The “Mount Trumpmore” statue that South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem gave to then-President Donald Trump—grafting him onto the iconic monument—was not mothballed. The bronze—which has not been seen since it was presented—made a surprise appearance in a photo Trump released Tuesday showing him meeting Kyle Rittenhouse at Mar-a-Lago. The sculpture, created by South Dakota artists Lee Leuning and Sherri Treeby can be seen below a table at the Trump resort in Palm Beach, Florida“Cool,” Leuning told The Daily Beast when the photo was shared with him. “That’s our piece. Definitely. That’s pretty cool.

Beiler said he initially thought it was some sort of jellyfish, but after closer inspection he realized it was something far more unusual. "It's the stuff of nightmares—[its] mouth almost looked bloody," he said. "I'd say it was nearly a foot long."

He took some pictures of the fish and went on his way. A photograph, which can be accessed on the NBC 7 San Diego website, shows the sand-covered pinkish-colored fish with black eyes, long sharp teeth and a pink tongue. It has black spots around its mouth and an appendage coming from its head.

Journalists at NBC 7 San Diego sent the pictures to several scientists at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography to find out exactly what had washed up on the San Diego shores.

They said it was a species of anglerfish which normally lives in the deep ocean and hunts using a light from its head appendage. The exact species was a Pacific footballfish, Himantolophus sagamius.

Ben Frable, collection manager of the marine vertebrate collection at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, told the broadcaster that this individual appears to be a mature female. Female Pacific footballfish are far larger than males, in some cases up to 60 times bigger, Frable said.

"This is one of the larger species of anglerfish, and it's only been seen a few times here in California, but it's found throughout the Pacific Ocean," he is quoted as saying. "The Pacific footballfish is known from 30 specimens that have ever been collected and brought to museums around the Pacific Ocean. They've been found in Japan, all the way down to New Zealand, all over, and a lot of times, they have been found washed up on beaches, so it's not really quite sure what causes them to wash up."

Brandon Jones: 5 Things to Know About Michelle’s ‘Bachelorette’ Contestant

  Brandon Jones: 5 Things to Know About Michelle’s ‘Bachelorette’ Contestant Meant to be? Brandon Jones hit it off with Michelle Young on season 18 of The Bachelorette, and their relationship has been full speed ahead ever since. The traveling nurse recruiter, 27, met the teacher, 28, during the season premiere, which aired in October. Their connection progressed as he received two group date roses in a row. After Michelle wrote a raw poem about her experience as a biracial child during the November 2 episode, Brandon revealed that he related to her story, noting that he was a “late bloomer” in a predominantly white environment. “I see a very attractive, handsome man,” the Bachelorette told him. “I think for me to be attracted to somebody, I have to be attracted to their mind as well, and that’s something that I’m very attracted to with you.” Brandon told the cameras at the time that he was “falling in love” with Michelle. “I’m crazy about this woman,” he gushed. “She gives me butterflies, she gives me happiness. She brings out the absolute best in me, which is what I’m truly looking for in a wife, and it’s just literally the best feeling I’ve ever had in my entire life. It’s beautiful just taking that next step in our journey together.” Despite their strong bond, the Oregon native had to wait for a one-on-one date until the week before hometowns. Michelle introduced Brandon to her parents during the November 23 episode, and he took a big step before earning a spot in the final four.

The anglerfish was not recovered and it is thought it was washed away by the ocean. Frable said if anyone finds an unusual fish along San Diego's beaches to contact them so they can go and collect it.

"We don't know much about the biology of these fishes, and that's one of the reasons we would like people to let us know when they find one on the beach so we can potentially learn a little bit more," he told NBC 7 San Diego.

Another anglerfish washed up on the shores of California earlier this year. Images of the black anglerfish were posted by local tour agency Davey's Locker Sportfishing & Whale Watching in May after it washed up on Crystal Cove beach.
