WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) - Scientists who conducted the most comprehensive survey to date of New Zealand's Antarctic waters were surprised by the size of some specimens found, including jellyfish with 12-foot tentacles and 2-foot-wide starfish.
A 2,000-mile journey through the Ross Sea that ended Thursday has also potentially turned up several new species, including as many as eight new mollusks.

Federal Jelly Reserves greater than thought.
Scientists discovery of enormous jellyfish in the Antarctic
have lead to a revision in the theory of Peak Jelly.
While discovery does not indicate greater reserves under the continental US. American researchers continue to remain
up beat with the latest news of a Jam to Jelly conversion

New discovery of conversion process announced.
Scientists examining the results of the process
were heard to exclaim, “It must be jelly, jam don’t shake like that!”.
I say BS. What scientist would find a 2 foot starfish or a 12 foot jellyfish and not take a picture. It can’t be true. Who are these My Way people and why don’t they join the 20th century and put pictures with their articles?
That’s not a jelly fish!?!
I betcha real jelly fish all vote democrat. Goes with being spineless.
The Portuguese Man of War has tentacles as long as 165 feet.
Quick, let's check the obituaries, is Michael Dukakis missing? Or maybe it's the Archbishop of Canterbury....
These are a result of Global Warming. Bush’s fault!
Lol! I want what you’re smoking! :)
Could be their new party symbol. And since we ended up with McCain because of them, our new symbol could be an elephant getting stung by a jellyfish.
Not Dukakis or Archbishop of Canterbury. Just Al Gore on an Antarctic vacation.
Or perhaps it was the Cape Cod Orca in drag.
If you want to catch either of them, use Euro-dollars.
“And since we ended up with McCain because of them, our new symbol could be an elephant getting stung by a jellyfish.”
Or, maybe, a rather pathetic elephant being dragged toward sure death in a tar pit by big ol’ grasping jellyfish tentacles?
I caught a foot wide starfish crab fishing on the sea of othotsk.
