Behold The Giant Jellyfish

A very rarely seen stygiomedusa gigantea. Usually found in the Indian Ocean, this one was discovered hanging around an oil well 5,000 feet under the Gulf of Mexico. The tentacles are estimated at about 25 feet (8 Meters long).

This footage actually seems to have come out in April, but for some reason has only gone viral among jellyfish nerds recently.
