Over half of all animals in the open ocean drift in currents. Jellyfish cross entire oceans feeding on whatever happens to tangle with their tentacles. The jelly-like Portuguese man-of-war can harness sail power to fish with its deadly tentacles.

The big blue is the world’s greatest wilderness, far from shore and many kilometres deep. It’s a vast marine desert where there is little to eat and nowhere to hide. Yet it’s home to some of the biggest and most spectacular creatures on earth.

This episode reveals what it takes to survive in this savage and forbidding world. We witness feats of incredible endurance, moments of high drama and extraordinary acts of heart-wrenching self-sacrifice.

    Jellyfish: “MY KIDS ASLEEP—“
    Fish Police Officer: “I SAID TENTACLES ON THE SEABED!”

    (Later, in Jellyfish jail, the Jellyfish has his mugshot taken..)

    Killing is a crime, kids. The Jellyfish knows better.

  3. I was stung by one when i was 11, was boogie boarding and it wrapped around my pinky. Very painful. My finger went numb, and then over the next few hours the numbness traveled all the way up my arm and i couldn’t move it. For days i was left with the bright red mark of where it wrapped around, and an extremely sore arm. 9/10 pain…
