Check this out! A giant, fuchsia-pink jellyfish was spotted in the Adriatic Sea for the first time in 70 years.

Amateur divers off the northern coast of Italy photographed the Drymonema dalmatinum, which can grow to more than three feet in diameter. Jellyfish are a very cool site to see, but they’re sting is bitterly horrible!

It is one of the most rare jellyfish to be seen in the Mediterranean. The bizarre but beautiful creature originates its Latin name from the fact that it was first discovered off the coast of Dalmatia in the 1880s by a German naturalist, Ernst Haeckel.

It has been seen on a few occasions after that but sightings stopped at the end of the Second World War.
