First of all let us clear our mind that penis fish is actually not a fish but worms. It is called Urechis caupo, a species of spoon worm in the family of Urechidae. They are commonly known as innkeeper worm or the penis fish. The creature is found in shallow water on the west coast of North America where it forms a U-shaped burrow in the sediment. It is because of the recent storm in California that left thousands of these worms on Drake’s Beach in Point Reyes. On December 12, 2019, the New York Post tweeted about the story followed by other news portals.

SHOOK 😳 Thousands of these marine worms—called fat innkeeper worms, or “penis fish”—were found on Drake’s Beach last week! These phallic organisms are quite common along the West coast of North America, but they spend their whole lives in U-shaped burrows under the sand, so few beachgoers are aware of their existence. ⛈🌊 A recent storm in Northern California brought strong waves that washed away several feet of sand from the intertidal zone, leaving all these fat innkeeper worms exposed on the surface. 🏖 Next time you go to the beach, just think about the hundreds of 10-inch, pink sausages wiggling around just a few feet under the sand. 🙃 . .
