We’ve received some great questions lately including: “What are these things?” Both were found on the beach in Lewes and brought to us by some curious visitors.

After some digging we found out that the mass on the left are Common Whelk (Buccinum undatum) eggs and the mass on the right are Goose-Neck Barnacles!!

Typically this type of whelk is only found as far south as New Jersey...but it seems like they decided to cross the Delaware Bay for a visit!
