It’s been over 5 years since they were last spotted off the Island.

 

The Jellyfish can grow to 30 cm in length, and have stinging tentacles upto 10 metres in length, if anyone is stung by one of them they are advised to try and remove the stings with tweezers instead of conventional methods like applying vinegar.
