Giant jellyfish spotted by divers – BBC News

Divers have swum with a huge barrel jellyfish off the coast of Cornwall.

Lizzie Daly, a biologist with Wild Ocean Week, said the creature was as big as her body.

It is the largest species of jellyfish which is found in British waters, with the average diameter being about 40cm (16 inches).

    If it’s blue, good luck to you.
    If it’s yellow, it’s a friendly fellow.
    If it’s red, it’s dead.
    If it’s brown, swim down.
    If it’s see-through, jump out the sea too.

      @Soy Latte the “story” you suggest was Danish, the book. But the actual lore and idea came from a source, that source material was jamacia. The jamacian water mumma or mermaids were different from the European portrayals of mermaids (which they got that story from ancient Assyria ) Europeans mermaids were said to be the causes of shipwrecks.
      The jamacian mermaids were loving, they combed their hairs from collections they found from ship wrecks (much like how Ariel had a collection of items from ship wrecks) the atmosphere of the little mermaid is based IN the Caribbeans, the crab is Jamaican,. You can tell Disneys influence WAS from the jamacian version. Proof is in the pudding. Oh and the Danish book vers the mermaid was green…. Not even white.
