Would You Swim With A Jellyfish?

Sure, we could spend hours (er, days) browsing cat videos, but, for those who enjoy a deeper dive into the scientific and philosophical realm of the animal kingdom, there's The Dodo. Covering everything from why cats purr to to sting operations on tiger poacher rings in Sumatra, The Dodo is committed to creating an unprecedented community for animal-lovers.
In a crystal clear video of one miraculous encounter off the coast of Italy, one diver meets a huge Mediterranean jellyfish — otherwise known as a “fried egg” jelly — who floats calmly nearby. The species, which appears to have a sting that is harmless to humans, can grow to be more than a foot in diameter, making the jelly in this video one of the larger of the ocean’s fried eggs.
