Portuguese Man-of-War (Physalia physalis)

Although a member of the phylum Cnidaria, the Portuguese man-of-war is not a “true” jellyfish. These animals consist of a complex colony of individual members, including a float, modified feeding polyps and reproductive medusae. Physalia typically inhabit the warm waters of the tropics, sub-tropics and Gulf Stream. Propelled by wind and ocean currents, they sometimes drift into nearshore waters of South Carolina. Though they infrequently visit our coast, swimmers should learn to identify these highly venomous creatures. The gas-filled float of the man-of-war is purple-blue and can reach lengths of 12 inches. Under thefloat, tentacles equipped with thousands of nematocysts hang from the feeding polyps extending up to 65 feet.

The man-of-war can inflict extremely painful stings. Symptoms include severe shooting pain described as a shocklike sensation, and intense joint and muscle pain. Pain may be accompanied by headaches, shock, collapse, faintness, hysteria, chills, fever, nausea and vomiting. Initial contact with Physalia may result in only a small number of stings. However, efforts to escape from the tentacles may further discharge nematocysts and intensify stings. Care should be taken when removing the adhering tentacles. Severe stings can occur even when the animal is beached or dead.

  6. Thanks for this excellent article. Yet another thing to mention is that many digital cameras arrive equipped with the zoom lens that allows more or less of your scene to get included through ‘zooming’ in and out. These kinds of changes in the aim length are usually reflected while in the viewfinder and on massive display screen right on the back of the exact camera.
