HUGE JELLY REDISCOVERED 100 YEARS LATER
Not much is known about this mysterious species, measuring 50 cm long and has a powerful sting that can be felt in the water surrounding the creature.
The incredibly rare Crambione cookii had not been seen since 1910, but has recently been discovered on the coast of Queensland, Australia, where he was captured.
His sketch has so far been the only record of the living creature and has even been used to help identify the animal by jellyfish expert Lisa-Ann Gershwin, who confirmed the existence of this unusual marine inhabitant after he was captured.
