(Oregon Coast) - A closer look at Oregon's beaches often reveals new things, but it can create more questions than it answers.

A recent closer peek at the sands at Hug Point - near Cannon Beach - showed some tiny wonders appearing on the beach. Seaside Aquarium's Tiffany Boothe found a miniscule creature called the gooseberry - or comb jellies. Their scientific name is Pleurobrachia, and Boothe says they periodically show up on the Oregon coast when west winds push them onshore.
