Australian Giant Monster February 6, 2014Posted by stuffilikenet in Mutants, Science.
One may well argue that Australia is a dangerous place what with crocodiles, 17 of the world’s most deadly snakes, poisonous plants too numerous to mention, insects that frighten Chuck Norris and really dreadful beer. Still, the unholy terrors that lurk in the water are just as unsettling, like this little charmer, a five-foot-across jellyfish.
Oh, gods. Just look at that thing. Found on a beach south of the Tasmanian capital Hobart, this behemoth is being scrutinized by the local scientificos like Lisa Gershwin, a scientist with the government’s Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, who is trying to classify the beast. She’s a twenty-year veteran jellyfish-watcher: "It is so big it took our breath away".
