New Delhi| Jagran Trending Desk| Nature never fails to amaze us - sometimes with its beauty, the other with peculiar things it holds. In one such case, a rare creature has been found on the beach of Caernarfon in North Wales. Martyn Green, 47, was on a beach holiday with his family when he noticed something unusual on the shores. At first look, Green and his family thought that it was some piece of wood.
However, when they went near to have a close look, they saw the strange driftwood covered with thousands of tentacled sea creatures. Green took to social media to share his unusual discovery with the world. He described the creatures as "mesmerising to watch".
"My wife Gemma, she found it. We were walking on the beach and she called us and said 'come back, look at this," he told Liverpool Echo.
"We went and had a look and it looked like something not of this world," he added.
