A woman in Australia spotted a mysterious sea creature while walking on a Sunshine Coast beach on Monday morning.
Debbie Higgs discovered the strange red blob on Mudjimba Beach while taking photos on the beach.
She posted a picture of the unusual find on Twitter and wrote: "I've just found this #jellyfish washed up at #mudjimba -what thejQuery191023444314235989883_1408966407702 Bright red & approx 25cm long".
Marine experts soon took a look at her photos and the Queensland Museum told Sunshine Coast Daily that it was possibly a sea slug.
A spokeswoman said: "It's hard to pinpoint without examining it and knowing the size.
"Their nearest guesses, based on colour and the side 'frills' is that it might be a Spanish Dancer sea slug."
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Ms Higgs said: "I had a tea towel in the car so I picked it up and took it home and put it in a bucket of salty water."
Spanish dancer slugs are found in the tropical Indo-Pacific Ocean and the Red Sea. They reach up to 15 inches and are bright red. Their swimming style resembles the waving skirts of a Spanish dancer and when threatened by predators they shoot inky, acid spray.
