NO?

Not to worry, you are not alone.

First off, we acknowledge that it is super weird for a fish to be called penis fish. Having said that, a visitor to a beach in California was left puzzled after he was met with the sight of thousands of fat innkeeper fish, or “penis fish,” washed up on the sand.

A photo of the scene shows the 10-inch-long pink creatures covering the shore of Drakes Bay, on the coast of northern California, around 30 miles northwest of San Francisco. The image was taken by a man named David Ford on December 6, who later shared it with the magazine Bay Nature for their “Ask the Naturalist” segment.

Ford asked Ivan Parr, a biologist in Northern California: “I saw thousands of these on Drakes Beach on Dec. 6, after the recent storm. What happened?”

Parr responded in an article headlined: “Naturally, 2019 Closes with Thousands of 10-Inch Pulsing ‘Penis Fish’ Stranded on a California Beach.”

The animals live beneath the surface of the sand, which can be broken up by intense storms, throwing the worms out from their homes, Parr said.

Oh! I see.
