Lion’s Mane Jellyfish

lions-mane-jellyWe’ve been starting to see more jellyfish coming in over the last two weeks, which indicates that the sea is warming up 🙂 . Tim managed to video a Lion’s Mane jellyfish underwater at close quarters off Ramsey Island, on one of our Wet and Wild jet boat wildlife trips. Lion’s Manes can sting badly so it’s worth keeping clear. This was taken safely from the boat by putting the camera in the water at the back of the boat:

It’s best not to swim close to these critters 🙂

No, this isn’t Tim filming. See Forbes online for an entertaining discussion of this popular photo.
