WARNING: if you're in any way skittish - don't proceed any further. 

Don't say we didn't warn ya. 

Reddit user Voolist shared this terrifying photo of their dog alongside an enormous fecker of a jellyfish on Banna Beach in Kerry yesterday. 

Holy f*cking sh*te. 

Size of that yoke. 

According to a comment under the post, this here's a lion's mane jellyfish - AKA the largest known species of jellyfish, according to Wikipedia. It's range is confined to cold, boreal waters of the Arctic, northern Atlantic, and northern Pacific Oceans.


In fact, they can grow up to 120 feet in length. HORRIFYING.
