Jellyfish "Compass" (Chrysaora hysoscella), which is one of the most beautiful jellyfish in the oceans and which belongs to the group of potentially dangerous for human sea creatures, was discovered in the Bay of Kotor.

It is worth noting that the "burns" caused by this kind of living creatures that inhabit the seas and oceans are very painful, but they are still not dangerous to human life. In the Persian Gulf, they appear cyclically, every few years, told the information portal RTCG Branka Pestorich from the Montenegrin Institute of Marine Biology.

Branka Pestorich also reported that in 2014 the jellyfish Chrysaora hysoscella was quite common in Bay of Kotor. The burns of these marine animals are very painful, but they are not dangerous to human life.

“Adults of this aggressive type of jellyfish can reach 40 centimeters in diameter and 2 meters in length, and their twenty-four tentacles, which are arranged in groups of three, have poisonous cells. Jellyfish "Compass" belongs to the group of potentially dangerous for human. Wind, rain, waves and sea currents affect their movements. Sea currents and waves carry them, so we often see jellyfish in large numbers in bays and gulfs, as well as near the coast and even on land,” said B. Pestorich, warning bathers to be careful.
