We just heard from a reader who found an interesting worm on the beach in Baja Mexico, Magdalena Bay.  She sent us a photo in the hopes that we can identify this creature.

blue worm

The worm is long, turquoise-blue, and very thin. Despite the photograph, we are unable to figure out what species this creature is. We couldn’t find any other similar looking worms that would be found in Mexico, or anywhere else in the world. We invite our readers to write in the comment section if they have any ideas about what this worm could be.

In summary, a reader sent us a photo of a curious blue organism she found while in Mexico. We aren’t sure what this creature could be, and we invite anyone with an idea to share it in the comment section!

  1. It looks like some sort of” Threadworm”?. There are millions of people living w Threadeorm parasites. Everyday, loosing more & more of themselves & no cure. Regular Dr’s. Will 302 you, if you even bring it up. So, there’s a ton of people, who left tired & untreated turn to them selves. Experimenting with bleach baths to drinking apple cider vinegar and sucking down garlic cloves!? Just so they can get a good night’s sleep!? They’re also referred to as horse hair worms they’re in every orifice of the body and they come and go freely inside and out!? There extremely fast sticky thin? It’s like a piece of very very fine micro hair?! This stickiness on it let’s lent and other things stick to it you can also stick to your scalp which it does.? So all these people are mad that the medical community is not helping any of us. And we’re dying a little bit more each day because of it. What I found helpful I’ve had this since I believe 2014 is when it started. And baking soda and charcoal baths along with hydrogen peroxide. Do work but make sure you have clean sheets every single day you have to clean your sheets and clothing and shower two times a day most likely. Also vacuum constantly charcoal chips like charcoal mulch? If you put them in little mesh bags around your house it will collect a lot of dust, so that you’re not constantly especially with the air conditioners on and everything in the the heater? They it’s all over the place. But doctors need to go to school for this and I need to start listening to the patients! And stop being so critical. I feel bad for all the people that have been diagnosed with a psychological disorder!? Because it’s the 30th day that they’ve been in a hospital? Pleading their sanity!? I’ve learned they’re not going to listen! The more you repeat you’re not insane the more insane they make you and that is the truth! On the 30th day if they can’t find anything wrong with you!? And by the way they only do certain parasitic testing they don’t there is no test for threadworms or horse hair worms?! Most likely you will be released from that hospital on the 30th day with a psychological condition like psychosis! In order for them to get paid by the insurance company for the 30 days that they had you stay there! Then they shoot you up with a shot so that you don’t feel anything you don’t cry you don’t laugh you walk around like a robot I’d rather be insane than feel the way I’m feeling! It would make it a hell of a lot easier to explain!? There’s a dire need for help in the United States I live in Pennsylvania! And something fell out of a tree in the springtime and I walked underneath of a tree with my coffee in the morning! On to my head and it felt like a raindrop but it didn’t rain. And their horse hair worms but there’s nematodes with it so there’s no way to treat it all because there’s no cure!?

  2. I believe it was previously identified as a GREEN PADDLE WORM. I found the same thing on the beaches of La Paz on the Sea of Cortez

  3. In May 2019 at Puerto Penasco on the Sea of Cortez these were everywhere in the sand at low tide. They came up and slithered into a puddle. They were almost translucent. They appeared to have a stripe down their middles. Seemed like great fish food.

  4. Sea of Cortez, La Paz, MX. Same kind of worms the last several years. No one seems to know exactly what they are. If one is dropped in front of another, the one in the sand will react with a very quick striking type reaction with the front of it’s body turning white for just an instant. So fast it’s easy to miss. The worm in the way certainly doesn’t like it but isn’t killed either. Very bizarre. After a few hours they just disappear back into the wet sand.

  5. I saw one like this the other day on the Pacific side pf Panama. It was about 4 inches long, maybe 2.0 mm round and a beautiful shade of dark turquoise blue. It was in the sand where the tide had just rolled out.
