Giant jellyfish that can grow up to six feet in diameter in Japan’s Fukui Prefecture provide divers the perfect chance to photograph these graceful sea creatures.
The Nomura’s jellyfish, known as the elegant giants of the sea, can grow up to a staggering six feet in diameter, making them 100 times the size of an average jellyfish.
They are commonly found between the waters of China and Japan.
In this video, you can see the amazingly long tentacles of the stunning jellyfish as it lazily makes its way through the water.
Despite their daunting size and painful sting, these jellyfish are not known for being aggressive toward humans.

The largest known species of jellyfish is the lion’s mane jellyfish, with its largest diameter size reported to be more than seven feet. It is typically found in the English Channel, the Irish Sea, the North Sea and in Scandinavian waters.
Even though they aren’t aggressive, I wouldn’t be so quick to go swimming up to that thing.
