No. The color of the diver makes me think it was pasted there.
Also, what would be the purpose of the jellyfish being that big? It would be impractical from a survival standpoint. Defies logic.

I say photoshopped.

I don't think anyone would get that close to it if it was real. You couldn't pay me enough to get near that thing!

from what I've found through google , it seems that the largest jellyfish grow up to 2 meters, so not quite as big as the photo. I'm pretty sure that is photoshopped.

couple of links on giant jellyfish

the pics of those in japan still look pretty impresive though

That's a perspective shot. Notice how close the jellyfish is and how far away the diver is.

Gives the impression that the jellyfish is bigger than it is.

The diver in the photo is in front of the Jellyfish, so how could it appear closer?

Still agree its a fake, but what you said made no sense.

The first one is fake and has been debunked.

jellyfish of any size freak me out. thank god the first one wasn't real!

Not exactly huge but this guy is screwed! he looks well scared



Wikipedia says that the "Lions mane jellyfish" is the largest species of Cnidaria (Posh folk's term for jellyfish
)

The largest official record is roughly 2.5 metres but "their sizes vary largely either way" . Obviously they couldnt get their tape measures out. So that original picture is probably fake. Its USUALLY really obvious that something like this is fake, but what would be the point anyway.

BUT! the first pic looks about 4 - 6 metres anyway, so even if its fake then its not thaaaat far from reality anyway. meh.......

There are definitly really huge Jellyfish out there like Portogese Man of War, they are long as well as big in diameter.

I am a Jellyfish-o-phobic, they freak me out so much I don't even go into the sea where Moon Jellies roam, I never want to touch one ever.

They do facinate me though.

Lion Maned Jellyfish is not the largest but the longest creature on earth, because of the tentacles not its mass:



obviously they couldnt fit the tentacles into the image
