Hello, good people of the internet. Do you know what the most terrifying sea creature is?
"A shark*," you confidently answer with a light chuckle.
WRONG. IT'S THIS GUY RIGHT HERE.
"But...that's just a jellyfish," you whimper, confused.
Yes, jellyfish are beautiful! But they're also SCARY AS HELL. Allow me to explain:
First of all, they literally do not have brains. They're just out here swimming around with ZERO brain cells.
They don't have hearts either.

They can still sting you even after they're DEAD.
Some jellyfish have teeth!!!
One type of jellyfish can actually reverse age.
Know what the most venomous marine animal is? Surprise — it's a type of JELLYFISH!
In fact, box jellyfish have tentacles than reach up to 10 freakin' feet long. Scared yet?
But that's not the biggest jellyfish — that's actually the Lion’s Mane Jellyfish, which has been recorded to reach 120 feet long.
Still not freaked out? What if I told you that a group of jellyfish is powerful enough to take down an entire 10-ton fishing boat?
