...include the Lion's Mane Jellyfish. We found a dead one washed up on the beach a couple of nights ago.
The Lion's Mane lives in the cold waters of the northern oceans. In the Arctic it can grow to tremendous size: the largest recorded Lion's Mane had tentacles 120 feet long... longer than a Blue Whale. The Lion's Mane's appearance is not deceptive: these guys can sting. We notice them most during shrimp season, when their tentacles occasionally get entangled with shrimp lines. It's really, really fun to get a splattering of Lion's Mane tentacles in your face as you tend the mechanical pot puller.
