STANWOOD, WA (CNN) - A father and son taking a stroll on the beach Friday now have their own big fish tale after they discovered a monster jellyfish washed ashore.
"We were just stunned when we saw it at first," Sherman Pike said.
The monster sea creature Sherman Pike and his son Oliver found Lion's Mane jellyfish measuring more than four feet across.
"All the colors and coming out of the center of it looks like sort of armored plates," Sherman Pike said. "They're something else entirely but really like just awesome to see."
The pikes said they've seen plenty of jellyfish in and around the Puget Sound but have never seen one like this on the beach.
The jellyfish washed back out into the sound and is no longer where the Pike's found it.
