Thousands of red tuna crabs washed ashore on June 7, 2016 in Mission Beach, San Diego, California.
Visitors in the area around the South Shores Park Boat Launch found beaches covered with the crabs.
Red tuna crabs are typically found off the coast of Baja California, however, El Nino weather patterns have pushed them north and onto Southern Californian beaches.
Last month, millions of crabs also washed ashore in Ensenada, Mexico, on Del Monte Beach in Monterey, California and Imperial Beach.
