A potentially deadly species of jellyfish recently washed up on the beaches of the Jersey shore.

Beach patrol in Harvey Cedars found a rare Portuguese man-of-war along the sands of LBI Sunday, NJ.com reports. This particular fish was empty of its poisonous venom.

The carnivorous invertebrate can deliver a dangerous and extremely painful sting even after it's dead. With long, tentacles of up to 6-ft. on average, the man-of-war can extend up to 165 feet, according to National Geographic.

Deadly? Probably, but still kinda pretty. :-)
