Divers Discover Human-Sized Jellyfish Swimming Off Coast of England

A British diver was stunned--but luckily, not stung--by a human-sized jellyfish she recently found swimming off the coast of the United Kingdom. BBC wildlife host and biologist Lizzie Daly swam up to the giant barrel jellyfish as her underwater cinematographer, Dan Abbott, recorded her encounter with the cream-colored sea creature off the coast of Cornwall, England. The video quickly went viral after BBC tweeted it out on Monday. "It's known to get this large, but I haven't seen one this big," Daly told CBS News. "Dan said he hasn't seen one this big either...They're the largest jellyfish you can get here in the U.K. waters." Luckily, Daly adds that such jellyfish are "not a threat to humans. They have a mild sting, but wouldn't cause damage to humans." She and Abbott wound up spending about an hour palling around with the creature underwater.
