Painful “Clinging” Jellyfish Has Returned to the Jersey Shore
A Jellyfish normally found in the Pacific Ocean that was discovered a few years ago on the Jersey Shore has returned once again.
About 40 clinging jellyfish – each between 1 to 2 centimeters in diameter, and some about the size of a dime was spotted in an area off Monmouth Beach known as the Hook according to the Asbury Park Patch.
It's known as the "Clinging" Jellyfish, and it certainly packs a punch. Each jellyfish can trail 60 to 90 tentacles that uncoil like sharp threads and emit painful neurotoxins.
You shouldn't find them at any swimming beaches, because they tend to attach itself to vegetation and algae in back bays and estuaries, but just keep your eyes open for them this Summer.
