This bizarre but beautiful fuchsia-pink creature has been spotted in the Adriatic Sea for the first time in 70 years.

It has been photographed by amateur divers off the northern coast of Italy. This rare jellyfish (Drymonema dalmatinum) was first discovered off the coast of Dalmatia in the 1880s by a German naturalist, Ernst Haeckel. Here a video of a similar jellyfish spotted in Cornwall:

Almost nothing is known about this rare jellyfish. And the reason for its re-emergence is a mystery. Well hopefully the coming-back of this mysterious giant jellyfish is not linked to global warming.
