Fact Friday

The lion’s mane jelly is the largest of jellyfish. It can even exceed the length of a blue whale! They have eight clusters of tentacles, containing about a hundred tentacles each. These clusters can grow to just under 100 feet (30 meters) long. The colorful, tangled arms in the center of the animal is what gives them their name.
