Portuguese man-of-war returns to Cape Cod
Beachgoers on Cape Cod have another thing to be aware of: The Portuguese man-of-war has returned. If touched, the creatures can deliver an extremely painful sting. Several of them have been spotted in recent days. Some washed up on Sea Gull Beach in Yarmouth, Mass., over the weekend, and another was spotted earlier this week off Stage Beach in Chatham. The Portuguese man-ofwar can often resemble floating plastic bags and are sometimes mistaken for jellyfish.
