Jellyfish in Devon Waters

Whilst swimming in Exmouth waters, one local resident was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of some incredible jellyfish – and he was even luckier not to get stung!

Blue jellyfish
According to Wildlife Trust, this beautiful jellyfish is often seen around the UK coastline in summer and autumn. 
They are attracted inshore by blooms of plankton that provide a plentiful supply of food. 

The blue jellyfish can drift along, easily capturing prey with its dense array of stinging tentacles.

Like many of the jellyfish species, this animal does sting, so if you find one on the beach it’s best not to handle it.
