    The largest jellyfish specie is the Lion’s mane jellyfish.  It lives in the Norther waters of the Artic, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.  Although the vary greatly in size, the jellyfish’s body can grow up to 8 feet in diameter and its tenticles can grow over 120 feet (as shown by one found in 1870 in Massachusetts).  This makes the Lion’s mane jellyfish larger than a blue whale.
