seaSea lice are popping up all over Gulf Coast beaches. While many sightings are along the panhandle, biologists say they expect to start seeing more move south along the coastline.

Sea lice are microscopic and impossible to spot in the water. They aren’t the kind of lice you may be thinking of.

Sea lice are actually jellyfish larvae and while they are tiny, they still have the same stinging cells as a full grown jellyfish, and they’ll leave a mark.

The rash they cause is called sunbathers eruption.  Source
