(STUFF) — Jellyfish that bear an unusual resemblance to breast implants have arrived on Nelson shores.

The black-lined marine animal “the size of a teacup and maybe the size of a saucer” is apparently harmless, if the behaviour of one swimmer at Little Kaiteriteri is anything to go by. Fellow swimmer Sara-Lee Dabinette was in the area this week and noticed a man weighing up the jellyfish with one in each hand.

Curious, she went closer and discovered that the jellyfish did indeed “feel like mammaries”, and resembled silicon breast implants, except for the black lines.
