@DrCraigMc @DoctorZen @NickHobgood @AllHandsMag Okay, last one.
The mola mola or ocean sunfish begins life as a larva no larger than a tick nymph.
But it can grow into an open-ocean behemoth that weighs more than a black rhino.

@DrCraigMc @DoctorZen @NickHobgood The world's heaviest medusozoa is the Nomura's jellyfish. It can weigh 440 pounds. And the look on this diver's face is absolutely spot on.

@DrCraigMc @DoctorZen And now I'm just reading this paper for fun.
There are giant clams that weigh more than 700 pounds, people.
That's, like, a lot more than a fully grown male black bear.

Hi, I'm a Japanese spider crab, and I may have been exaggerating a little bit.
According to @DrCraigMc's research (https://t.co/0EfQznAqY2), I'm only as long as the tallest person who ever existed.
If he held a yard stick on his head.
