Barrel Jellyfish...

Rhizostoma pulmo, commonly known as the barrel jellyfish, washed up on Mull earlier this month. 



They are a large jellyfish boasting domes "the size of dustbin lids" growing to 90cm wide!

One of the biggest predators of the barrel jellyfish is the Leatherback Turtle, which are occasionally recorded in UK waters.
