  2. why were you next to that thing . you could have gotten KILLED even though i dont know you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Man I hope it was worth it, because I would never, ever, EEEEVER, get close to something that big in my life.

  4. Big? It’s not even as big as a cow. Farmers and ranchers who milk cows or ride horses are used to bigger than that. But this is to be compared to our usual knowledge of jelly fish.

  5. That is one large jelly! Is that for real? I dive quite frequently here in the Pacific Northwest and our largest are lions manes which mind you I’ve seen some pretty large ones and in great numbers! I did a boat dive off Orcas Island and jumped in and we were surrounded by hundreds of them all HUGE! Maybe 2-3 meters at best. Do we know what type this is? Do we know how venomous it is? Dive Safely!


  6. Yes. On the photo, it looks a lot like a giant lion’s mane jellyfish (Cyanea Capillata). The largest recorded of these had a diameter of more than 2.3m (7 feet 6 inches) and the tentacles reached 36.5 m (120 feet). Found ashore in 1870.

    The Lion’s Mane sting is venomous, painful but usually not fatal. Divers beware.

  7. COOL! what type of jellyfish IS that? Cyanea Capillata? AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

  8. well i think that it is a big jelly fish to but why were u in there in the first place ??

  9. I wonder whether some people simply read what is written below the photo.

    Some others may fail to recognize that the diver is actually putting a “mark” on the jelly fish, probably to help in tracking its migration in the wide ocean.

  10. OMG!!! thatss huge man totally awsome !!

  11. man is that a proper jelly fish ?? i love your flippers and your tenticless dude 😀 nicee

  12. Are you crazy , I know some jelly fishs ar most poisonous animal ? but they are so beautiful!

  13. If that stung you then you’d have to get like superman to piss on you

  14. This is 100% real. These impressive jellyfish are a relatively well known species living in the Pacific Ocean. They are usually named “Lion’s mane” (in English).
