Very big jellyfish – level 2

08-07-2014 07:00

People saw a huge jellyfish off the coast of England. It looks like something from a different world. It weighs 20 kilograms. It measures up to one metre in diameter.

Despite the size, this type of jellyfish cannot hurt humans. It only swims up and down and looks for plankton to eat.

People saw a large number of blue jellyfish also. Unlike the big cousin, this kind of jellfish can hurt you a little. 

Difficult words: huge (very big), diameter (line from side to side of a circle), despite (the size does not matter).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

When you swim in the sea, are you afraid of jellyfish?
