What Is a Bloom, Bed, or Pod? Interesting Sea Animal Group Names
Look at that herd of jellyfish over there! Oh, wait....
... that's not quite right. Animals are super cool and the creatures of the sea are no exception! Some of them glow, others pack a powerful sting, and a few are – well – delicious (sorry, not sorry, shrimp 🍤).
What animals did you see on your last Sunset Beach vacation? Depending on the time of year, you might be lucky enough to spot a whale passing by, a school of porpoises, or a tiny ghost crab peeking out of the sand.
