We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: The ocean is terrifying.
A creature typically seen only in the depths of the Chesapeake reared its ugly head — and boy, do we mean ugly — on Virginia Beach, to the dismay of beachgoers
“Stargazers bury themselves in the sand in order to ambush prey,” the organization wrote in the post. “Their secondary gland creates an electric which makes them a serious predator.”

“They do not pose any real threat to humans,” ECSC wrote. “But they sure look menacing. Watch your step…”
