Pile of beach debris turns out to be strange sea creature - 9News

The "rope ball" is actually a form of coral.

National Park Service (NPS) employee Rebekah Claussen made the discovery on the Padre Island National Seashore near the Gulf of Mexico.

"We often get asked what this is, and more often people assume that it's trash. Although it may fool you into thinking that it is some sort of wire, this is actually a type of coral known as sea whip," she wrote.

"It comes in a variety of colors like red, white, purple and yellow. We mostly see the yellow and red varieties washing up on our beaches.

"Next time you're out for a stroll on the beach, look for the sea whip and remember, it's not trash."

This is not the first time a bizarre animal has left a beach-goer stumped.
