Beware of this stinger...

Summer’s almost here! But before you run to the nearest beach for some fun in the sun, be cautious of all those underwater monsters, especially jellyfish.

As you know, jellyfish are hard to spot in water, unless the sunlight hits them. They are simple creatures that react to even the lightest touch and their stingers pack a mean punch.

While most jellies aren’t dangerous, there are a few that are deadly — like the one you’re about to see. This jellyfish’s sting is so severe, that it can cause “fatal brain hemorrhages and on average send 50-100 people to the hospital annually,” according to its Wikipedia page.

Whoa, that’s scary. The size of this jelly may have a little something to do with it’s force. Keep your eyes open! You’d never want to come in contact with this.
