Transcript for Rare, human-sized jellyfish spotted off UK coast
Can't touch this Back now with our "Play of the day" and you can take a look at this stunning spectacle but you definitely wouldn't want to touch it. Ah. Yeah, you see the song there. Wildlife biologist and bbc host was scuba diving when she stumbled upon this mass ifshgs creature. That's a giant barrel jellyfish. It is very rare. Daly says it is usually only about as small as a trashcan. About three feet. This one is about five feet and they're usually only spotted after they wash up on shore so Daly was swimming with what she calls this gentle giant for quite some time and I say that because it has tentacles with a sting. It's the largest species of jellyfish found in British waters. You are a font of knowledge. They all sting is the important thing. Bottom line. It is beautiful.
