A new species of jellyfish appeared in the Jellyfish Museum - the Arctic Cyanea (Lat. Cyanea сapillata) or Lion's Mane. This is the largest jellyfish in the entire world ocean, which has gained wide popularity thanks to the story "The Lion's Mane" by Arthur Conan Doyle, in which it was told about the painful death of one of the heroes, caused by the meeting with the Arctic Cyanea.
In fact, rumors of its mortal danger to humans are too exaggerated. Cyenea not only can not cause death, but it is even not able to bring great harm to human health.
This jellyfish in nature can reach huge sizes. The diameter of the dome can reach 2.5 meters, and the length of the tentacles - 37 meters. It even exceeds the size of the blue whale, the largest animal on the planet, whose maximum length reaches 34 meters.
