Strange and mysterious jelly-like creatures wash up on OC beaches

Thousands of strange sea creatures have washed ashore in the O.C. Take a look at this photo of the critters that washed up on Huntington Beach and Huntington State Beach.

People have some wild theories as to what the jellyfish-like-invertebrates may be and where they come from.

Some think they're alien eggs...

Now while we don't know for sure what they are, the little gelatinous-pods apparently can slither a bit and dig into the sand.

Whatever you call them -- they're stirring up conversation on social media.
