Rare And Giant Jellyfish Captured On Video In The Gulf of Mexico Looks Terrifying

This giant, deep-sea jellyfish is called the Stygiomedusa Gigantea and has only been seen 115 times since its initial discovery in the early 20th century; although it’s believed to live widespread throughout the world. Phillip Trudeau said he captured it using a remotely operated underwater (ROV) vehicle at 3,330-feet beneath the Gulf of Mexico.

With its 20-foot long tentacles, this giant creature lurks in the Gulf of Mexico and has been spotted there before as well as the Japan and Pacific coasts.
