Two Portuguese man-of-war wash up on beach
On Sunday, a North Sydney woman spotted two Portuguese man-of-war on Kennington Cove Beach and people should be on the look out for the venomous animal on land and in water.
“I was just walking down the beach, as I normally do. They were up towards the back of the beach, where there is a lot of rock. I think high tide must have washed them up,” Wendy Russell explained. “They were just sitting around, being blown by the wind. They were very noticeable. But if you don’t know what they are then you wouldn’t know you are supposed to stay away from them.”
Russell took pictures of the animals and sent them to the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for removal since their sting is very painful.
