On the Azov invasion of the Cornerots was recorded. Previously these jellyfish lived only in the Black Sea.
Cornerota can reach 60 cm in diameter. Have many oral lobes, which on the side look like tentacles. On these processes – an abundance of stinging cells containing poison. After contact with the jellyfish remains a painful burn, in some Cases not descending for several years. Kill a healthy person Cornerot cannot, but for allergy sufferers, children and weakened people strong individual reactions are possible.
Cornerot can weigh up to 10 kilograms
Now the flow of tourists on the beaches of Ukrainian resorts in Genichevsk and Kirillovka, where the most jellyfish, greatly decreased. Experts believe: cornerota migrate from the Black Sea to the Sea of Azov because the water in the latter is becoming more and more salty. If this process will not stop, jellyfish will continue to scare away tourists.
