The giant lion’s mane jellyfish can reach up to 2.4 meters in diameter and its tentacles 36.5 meters long.
Sisters Maeve and Aoife Conway managed to capture on video a giant lion’s mane jellyfish, one of the largest jellyfish species in the world, while they were canoeing off the coast of Irish County Mayo.
“It was absolutely huge, the tentacles were so long that I didn’t realize it until later, “Maeve told the Irish Mirror newspaper.” We spent a lot of time in the water, so it was great to see something like that.”
The woman noted that they only realized what type of jellyfish it was once they reviewed the video at her home. “I’m glad I had my GoPro, because there were a lot of unusual jellyfish around us and several seals,” he added.
The giant lion’s mane jellyfish lives mostly in the cold oceans of the Northern Hemisphere and the largest representatives of the species can measure up to 2.4 meters in diameter and 36.5 meters in length. Contact with its tentacles is not normally fatal to humans, although the affected person may need medical attention for an allergic reaction.
