BOSTON — Miniature jellyfish-like creatures are invading New Hampshire and Massachusetts beaches, congealing into a slippery sludge almost an inch thick.
The creatures don't sting and are harmless, but the ooze is a turnoff for beachgoers. Steven L. Bailey, curator of fishes for the New England Aquarium, told The Boston Globe, "You could get slimed pretty seriously."
