The Lions Mane Jellyfish is the largest jellyfish in the world. They have been swimming in arctic waters since before dinosaurs (over 650 million years ago) and are among some of the oldest surviving species in the world.
I’m going to cry
that is absolutely horrifying.
HOLY SHIT LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT THING!
Why am I finding out about this now??
"Foolish creature of the flesh. I am ancient. I am forever. I have seen Empires rise and fall. I have seen entire species wither to cinders. I have seen the depths and the cold and the abyss that lay beyond. You are no more a nuisance to me than plankton. You are so insignificant, and I am so exquisitely eternal that I am the closest thing you will have to a God." -What I imagine the jellyfish would say to a human
GET ME STARTED
ON THESE MOTHERFUCKERS
That is horrifying.
If that’s scary, than say hello to my little friend, the “Stygiomedusa gigantea.” This guy has only been spotted 18 times, and filmed only twice. Its is also about 6 meters long and about a meter wide. Sadly it doesn’t have stingers, but it will still eat. It kinda just engulfs all it’s prey. I’m not real sure.
Aren’t Jellyfish so great? Because I think they are evil.
Imagine how it would look if the Orion nebula is only four light years away - the distance the nearest star is to us, instead of 1,300 light years. It would be so bright that we wouldn’t be aware of the dark sky. We wouldn’t see other stars. The whole world would be the Orion nebula and the sun.
