A striking image of a gargantuan jellyfish next to a woman’s foot for scale has gone viral on Reddit. The jellyfish is pictured lying on its side on the sand, and is a dark pink and brown, almost like a brain with tentacles coated in Jell-O.
According to user Alesig, he took the photo on a beach near Incheon in South Korea in 2008, but has never seen anything as big before or since.
“[It was] maybe 1-1.5m [3.2 to 4.9ft] across. Hard to tell. It was dead and squashed up a bit,” Alesig told Newsweek. “I’ve never seen anything like it since.”
