Lion's Mane (Sea Blubber)  (Cyanea capillata)

Lion's Mane Jellies are cpable of reaching a mantle width of over 6 feet and tentacles of over 30 feet long, though commonly sighted about 1-2 feet across. It is easily recognized by the 8 point flower shaped mantle that is transparent enough to see the orange/brown tentacles through the top. The tentacles provide a home to many other creatures.

Beware: The tentacles deliver a potent sting that is uncomfortable, though not considered dangerous. The burning sensation subdues after a couple of hours and can be relieved with meat tenderizer.
