Giant Box Jellyfish

When we were snorkelling at the false pass at the southern tip of Totegegie, we saw an enormous Box jellyfish. The corpus was 25-30 cm long, and the four orange tentacles another 20 cm. I only knew them from photos and thought theycwere 4 cm long. One boy from our group got stung on his fingers. After 45 min of bathing the hand in hot seawater, the pain was much better. The hand was still swollen. Luckily, he had no systemic symptoms. Not everybody who gets stung by a Box jellyfish is so lucky.
