Diver Discovers Giant Jellyfish That Is Twice Larger Than A Human

A big discovery of wildlife species has been found in Falmouth, England. While a biologist and wildlife presenter, Lizzie Daly was diving in around the sea for her Wild Ocean Wee campaign to raise fund for Marine Conservation Society, she encountered a giant barrel jellyfish.

Daly exclaimed that the jellyfish is larger than she is. And she said that it was the biggest jellyfish she has ever seen in the field.

According to Wildlife Trusts, barrel jellyfish is the largest jellyfish that can be found in waters around UK.

“I want to bring the audience on the journey with me, so I will be uploading videos and updates live as it happens throughout the week. Diving with seals, swimming with blue sharks and generally celebrating our coasts #WildOceanWeek is about showcasing how you can immerse yourself with diverse wildlife right on your doorstep and most importantly, supporting those on the forefront of conserving our marine environments.” Daly added.

This creature may be scary because of its form and size, but it doesn't mean it can be harmful to human. It is believed that the sting of it is the same as the average jellyfish.

However, barrel jellyfish is not the biggest and largest jellyfish, because the title goes to the lion’s mane jellyfish, which is known to be the largest species of jellyfish in the world.
