Lion's Mane Jellyfish (Cyanea capillata)
Lion's Mane Jellyfish (Cyanea capillata)
This is the largest known jellyfish, but fortunately the ones which venture this far south tend to be rather smaller than those in the Arctic. The stinging tentacles can reach a length of more than 30 metres, and tiny fragments can still sting when detached from the animal. Fortunately the sting, although unpleasant, is not life-threatening, but the prospect of meeting a shoal while swimming is dictinctly unappealing.
