Giant Sea Boogers on the Rise

Giant globs of mucus-like gunk called mucilages are on the rise. Formerly a summer phenomenon in the Mediterranean, rising temperatures have resulted in mucilages forming in winter and lasting for months. They can be up to 124 miles long. Made mostly of dead matter, they can harbor bacteria and viruses and pose a risk to swimmers. For more info, see National Geographic.
