HAVE you been spotting lots of jellyfish on North Devon's beaches this year?

Well we think we might just have found one of the biggest.

Frank Biederman took this photo at Instow beach which shows a huge, beastly-looking jellyfish on the shore.

Comparing it to the pair of feet behind it shows just how big the sea creature really is.

A LARGE jellyfish has washed up on Westward Ho! beach this morning.

The picture, taken by Phil Rayment, has got many people on the Westward Ho! Community Facebook page questioning what type of jellyfish the creature is.

One person thought it could be a Portuguese man o' war - a jelly fish with venomous tentacles, that candeliver a painful sting.

However, Megan Morris, a member of the Facebook page, said she believed it was a Velella, commonly called a By-The-Wind-Sailor.
