Another oarfish washes onto a California beach

A rare, serpent-like sea creature washed ashore in California for the second time in less than a week.
The 14-foot long oarfish washed ashore Friday afternoon in Oceanside Harbor in San Diego County.
Employees of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration cut the fish into pieces for further study.
Earlier in the week, an 18-foot long oarfish washed ashore off Catalina Island.
Sightings of the creatures are rare, because they dive more than three-thousand feet deep.
They can grow to be more than 50-feet long.
