And if you want to learn more about how big jellies can get (they do get big) check out this paper I wrote with @DrCraigMc. We went through the science and found the real reports. Summary: jellyfish can get massive. Just not this one. https://t.co/TFRnKFZ1Yj
Especially because jellyfish can get massive! If you want to read how big jellyfish can get, check out this paper I wrote with @DrCraigMc. We went through the scientific literature, found the real reports, and compiled them for your reading pleasure. https://t.co/TFRnKFZ1Yj
Size is approximately right (see: https://t.co/HWjt5Jc7S6) but I don't know how heavy that'd be https://t.co/NTwfK4pLQ8

By way of not burying the lede, the simplest answer to How Big? is: around 18m or 60 feet. The largest confirmed reliable measurement was 18.8m in the paper by @DrCraigMc & friends. https://t.co/jKweGedg01 2/x https://t.co/J9XELeMdac

They're not kidding about it being one of the largest sharks ever recorded here. Here is my analysis of 654 great white measurements stretching back to the 1800's and only 2 break 23ft (7m). Damn big shark. #SharkWeek https://t.co/5uI9uwsiaf https://t.co/YQyttxKehi
