The woman took to Facebook to find out the truth behind brain-like blobs on a beach. In the footage, one image of the object looks similar to a human brain which appears to be covered in a green sponge-like surface. 

 Another photo captured by the woman showcased additional vibrant blobs adorned with swirling patterns.

Intrigued by these enigmatic specimens, the woman turned to Facebook in search of answers, sparking a series of responses from fellow users who shared in her bewilderment regarding these spherical items.

Her post has numerous discussions while others expressed their confusion at the sight of the round objects. 

However, the woman said that these were unlike rocks, noting their soft texture upon her contact with one of them.

While others suggested that they could be a type of coral or sea sponge. 

One person said: It is a Jellyfish 

A second joke: They would make good Halloween decorations.

Another added: alien blobs

These enigmatic entities are, in fact, identified as Sea Squirts, marine creatures commonly inhabiting the ocean. It's not uncommon for them to wash up on various surfaces, including piers, ships, and rocks.

Dr. Vincent Raoult, an ecologist and fisheries biologist, clarified to Yahoo that Sea Squirts belong to the tunicate family, a species closely linked to vertebrates like humans.

'The terms are interchangeable, sea squirt is the common name,' Dr Raoult said. 

'They can get washed up on beaches during storms.'
