Couple swimming in Aegean Sea finds curious “floating sunny-side up”

The oceans are indeed full of curious, majestic creatures. Some of them are adorable, some are weird, while some are downright scary. This Singaporean couple spent some time in the Aegean Sea got a little bit of all that. As they were lounging near the sea, the two spotted something weird. There, floating in the Aegean Sea, in the Mediterranean Coast, was something that resembled a giant sunny-side up egg!

It had a yellow, yolk-like center, and an almost translucent circumference, reminiscent of a sunny-side up egg that’s two or three minutes from being totally fried.

It looked like this:

Of course, it caught the attention of the couple. The guy even tried to poke it. All that achieved was confirm it was a sea creature, and not just something someone left at sea.

However, he failed to get any sort of reaction from the creature. It simply floated freely. Still, this sunny-side up-looking creature kept the interest of the couple. They then got a wooden pole and used it to try and get the creature to flip over.

Upon seeing the blackish tentacles hidden underneath the creature, it dawned on them that it was actually a rare jellyfish!

Wanting a closer look, the jellyfish was brought closer to the shore. After doing some research, the couple found out what they found in the Aegean Sea was actually called Cotylorhiza Tuberculata. In layman’s terms, they call it Fried Egg Jellyfish!

Apparently, this giant fried egg jellyfish is rare and lives on warm water. Also, as they are a weak jellyfish species, they are harmless to humans.
