It sounds like something out of a 1950s B-movie, but the Brits are worried about an invasion of giant jellyfish after a second one was spotted this week.
Estimated to be 8 feet long, and the second giant barrel jellyfish was spotted by a member of the Fowey type of Shellfish, while in the control from the equipment on Tuesday, reports SWNS. The owner of the Fowey Seafood Will, of Hancock, was taken aback by what he saw.
“I’ll get it in the water occasionally to check out the site and out of the corner of my eye, I saw something that was bigger than me,” the 35-year-old Hancock said in a comment that has been acquired by SWNS. “It was at least 8 feet tall and probably 4 feet wide. It was the biggest one I’ve ever seen.”

MAN-SIZED JELLYFISH LURKING OFF THE ENGLISH COAST IS STUNNING AND DIVERS: “IT HAS BEEN AN EXPERIENCE THAT WE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.”
The first jellyfish was spotted on Monday in Falmouth, Cornwall, a couple of scuba divers that would swim next to them.
It is unclear as to exactly why the jelly fish are swimming so close to shore, but experts believe that the warmer weather may be a factor in causing their prey to move out of their places. There is also a concern that there will be more of them, especially at a time when the tourists and holiday-makers are spending more time in the vicinity of the coast during the summer months.
We will see that there is a lot more of them in absolute terms. I wouldn’t even say that we have seen to be the biggest yet, and they will continue to come out in August and September, as the weather warms up again.
Will Hancock, the owner of the Fowey Clams
Dr. Victoria Hobson, a marine ecologist who specialises in the barrel jellyfish, said that there are more of them now, because the water is taken from the British coast to be clear and flat.”
“There are plenty of sunfish around for a minute, and they will eat the sunfish like the warmer weather,” Dr. Hobson pointed out.
The big four, which are sometimes washed up on the shore in the “hundreds,” according to the Wildlife Trusts, will be attracted by the plankton bloom. They do have natural enemies, however, if they are to be considered as the favourite food of the leatherback turtles, the largest sea turtle.”
“It’s probably just a result of what they eat, and that’s why they’re so big,” Hancock added. “They have a lot of food that [they are] still quite large. They are, more and more, people who have them are caught in their trawls. We will see that there is a lot more of them in absolute terms. I wouldn’t even say that we have seen to be the biggest yet, and they will continue to come out in August and September, as the weather warms up again.”

Dave Swiggs, director of the Fowey and Seafood, it said that it takes “probably six or seven feet,” adding that the Band told him that he has to be careful not to let it.
“It was huge, and he had to be careful about getting too close to you, he is not a fan of the jelly-fish at the best of times,” Swiggs will be added.
However, they are not deadly or toxic, Hancock, and others, have a right to be afraid of, in the course of the jelly-fish, as they can still sting even after they have died, the Wildlife Trusts are listed on the web site.
“It is a blow, but it’s pretty mild, it’s like a stinging nettle sting,” Hobson continued. “I would highly recommend that you do not go and hug them.”
