The Pacific Ocean is an immense body of water with thousands of species living inside it. The newest discovery that lives in this ocean near San Francisco is a form of water insect called a Sea bee. A Sea bee is a insect as small as 3 centimeters with wings that lives underwater. It changes color but most of the time reveals itself as yellow. Its wings are extremely stiff which helps it move around underwater quickly and its size allows it to hide from predators. It's form of defense is stinging a poisonous liquid inside the predator. The sting is so poisonous, predators as big as sharks die within minutes. The poison is alike to that of a snake where it makes the blood turn into jello. These insects lay eggs where both male and female can conceive and they can lay as many as one thousand eggs. The sea bee gets its name from the regular bee because of its color and the way it stings. The founder of the sea bee is Genevieve Villarreal, a college student from San Jose State University who came across a sea bees nest near the San Francisco pier. The creatures are extremely fast and defensive and as many as one hundred of them come together if they feel attacked by a predator. They have microscopic fur-like skin that helps them swim fast and eyes that can see from miles away. Although scientist seem to know a lot about these newly discovered sea bees, there is still a lot more to learn.
