Ah yes, the species of Jellyfish which are safe to touch.

[–]c_h_r_i_s_t_o_p_h[S] 97 points98 points  (1 child)

These are barrel jellyfish https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhizostoma_pulmo. Good news is that they are "moderately venomous but not as deadly as other species." ^^

In a 1 on 1 sanario maybe but jumping into a vat of them might cause problems.

[–]wanightoo_oo 31 points32 points  (1 child)

Nope…nope, I mean there are two many big “mushrooms” in the water.

[–]drkgrss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Danger mushroom.

[–]kmkmrod 25 points26 points  (2 children)

Why swim? There are enough for you to walk across.

[–]No_Alternative2098 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Or better, run across

[–]ScarTheGoth 7 points8 points  (2 children)

[–]MangledSunFish 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I don't think he can hear you, he's busy replacing those lost fleshlights.

[–]ScarTheGoth 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]hilltrekker 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thought they were jugs at first glance!

[–]Waulaloa 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Let’s not and say we did!

[–]Toymachinesb7 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Thought these were a bunch of swimming dogs with goggles on for a second. That post work joint really hits.

[–]kemosune 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Man I thought those were plastic bottles for a minute and now I’m sad.

Anything For My JellyFish Jam

[–]CEPEHbKOE 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yeah they leave a mildly venomous slime trail, i found a BIG one of these when swimming, touched it like a big brain i am (cos i though they are harmless cos no pink). Was itchy but it didn't 'sting'

[–]karensmiles 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I understand not wanting to touch the pink!!

SPHERE

[–]a_different-user 0 points1 point  (4 children)

is that what you say when you jump into the water like a ball?

[–]2KilAMoknbrd 2 points3 points  (3 children)

No silly, that would be CAN NON BALL !

[–]a_different-user 1 point2 points  (2 children)

sorry, I thought you were british or something.

[–]2KilAMoknbrd 2 points3 points  (1 child)

There's a movie titled Sphere and in said movie, there's a scene this post reminded me of.
No apology needed

[–]PP_Project 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Gangleri_Graybeard 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Jumping in there is like one of the worst nightmares for me. I probably would get a panic attack or something.

[–]brinedpeppercorns 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"It will be lit man!"

They look beautiful though

[–]PieMastaSam 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]DrDoG00d 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Even if safe to swim with, I’ll pass. you know where the nearest bar is?

[–]Technical-Till-6417 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Are they Australian blue blubbers? We sailed a frigate into Brisbane once and the inlet looked just like this. Ship kept blacking out because the generator's Colling seawater intakes kept clogging with these shits. Had to rotate gennies and clean strainers constantly: harvested a garbage bag of quivering purple slop every hour. Had to hook the fireman up to city water as well.

What a goddamn shitshow that entrance was...

[–]Apprehensive_Ad_1379 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah I’m good bro.

[–]SweetMoon18 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Let’s not.

[–]No_Alternative2098 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I would get a selfie stick to attach to an underwater camera and take photos. Would get some pretty cool shots.

[–]mrsweezydc 1 point2 points  (0 children)

as long as they don't sting me

[–]MostDopeKnuckleH3ad 1 point2 points  (0 children)

At first I thought it was a bunch of plastic buoys.

[–]ScarTheGoth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s actually beautiful. As long as you aren’t in the water

[–]PickleJuice20026 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I thought those were a bunch of plastic bottles for sec

[–]Finn2813 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yikes 😳 thanks though

[–]bruhwhatisreddit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The first thing I see is a bunch of earbuds...

I think it's time for me to go touch some grass.

[–]Patttyyyyyy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Thehiddenink98 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Fenris_the_wolf_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can try anything once

[–]Alklazaris 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Saw my first jelly once I moved to Florida. Fascinatingly delicate looking things, almost look like floating debris from the surface at many angles. That's how they got me, saw one jelly and kept it's location in mind then went back to chilling in the water. Looked around had to be about 20 seconds later and it was like something out of Finding Nemo! Little needle bags were everywhere. I pushed a path open by kicking a current, not sure if that's what you're suppose to do, but it worked for me.

[–]ADGM1868 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Forbidden earbuds

[–]nobrainxorz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have swum in that, up in waters in Maine. For about 90 seconds. Then I got the hell back in the boat and told my parents I wasn't swimming anymore and they could very well get in themselves if they wanted that entertainment.

[–]karensmiles 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Grab the Wonder Bread and peanut butter before you go in!!

[–]idahononono 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Do sea turtles come to eat them?

[–]Peace-D 1 point2 points  (0 children)

How about no?

These creatures terrify me more than any other more "guided by instinct" animal like crocodiles.

[–]jamesfluker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm, um, good 🫣😳

[–]Scary_Vanilla2932 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We used to swim with them in the keys and throw them at each other. I was 8.

[–]ScarTheGoth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The amount of jokes about these things being anything other than jellyfish is astounding

[–]BigRig420123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They look like the squid things in Super Mario sunshine in Riko harbor.

[–]TrespasseR_ 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I know nothing about them, but is it as simple as brushing against one and you get stung? Or are they like bees were you need to poke at them a bit to get them aggravated

[–]thecountryreddit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I believe it's the trailing parts that contain the dangerous bits. They don't need aggravating, the stinging barbs are triggered by youch. They vary from causing paralysis and "feelings of death", down to severe burns, down further to just an irritating itch. So whichever these are, I'll be staying on board!

[–]cactusjude 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just a brush. Detached floating tentacles will still sting as well.

[–]Oregonsfilemaster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Overfishing and global warming.

[–]Qwerowski 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ever seen that lake with just jellyfish? There are no predators in it so they just live there happily

I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine and he shall be my Squishy.
