World’s Largest Jellyfish (WFOTD)

Posted By Ben Goulding, 23 March, 2010 | permalink

The largest jellyfish ever discovered was a Lion’s Mane jellyfish. It had a bell (body) with a diameter of 2.3 m (7 feet 6 inches) and tentacles 36.5 m (120 feet) in length. It was found washed up on the shore of Massachusetts Bay in 1870.

To put that into perspective, the largest blue whale ever recorded was a mere 110 feet long.
