Nomura Jellyfish are a large species of Japanese jellyfish, that seems to be giving them some big headaches. They can grow up to 2 meters in diameter and usually weigh over 200 kilograms, going up to 220 in numerous cases and they spawn in the seas between China and Japan, invading the Japanese shores for 4 years now. Stings are generally very painful, but do not cause major damage. Just 8 deaths have been caused by stings from the Nomura Jellyfish.
