    How big is a lion’s mane compared to a Portuguese man-of-war?

    Those smoked relatives make some fine tasting jerky.

    I thought the flea was the strongest … 1500 times its own weight.
    I always thought that would be a good superhero … man/woman is bitten by a radioactive flea and gains the proportionate strength.

    Smoking is a health hazard even for the deceased.

    It took 3,486 Hercules beetles to hold my aunt and just one Lions Mane Jellyfish over the fire while I smoked both of them…those damn beetles aren’t that strong!

    It is quite amazing that insect is so large yet still has so much strength.

    Don’t want to get tangled up in those “hairs” of that Lion gelly fish.

    According to the National Geographic website, the tentacles of the Portuguese Man-of-War can reach 165 feet (50 metres).

    Fleas are not really known for their strength, but for their jumping ability (according to various sources a flea jumping .59 meters would be the equivalent of a human jumping as high as a 100 story building. Have not seen the actual equation explaining this, but I am sure it is out there.). Ants, on the other hand, tend to be noted in terms of proportional strength to body size.

    @emjaycee

    I just remember reading a reference that a flea could lift 1500 times its own weight. That was a while ago .. .maybe it’s been refuted.
    (%$#%^ there goes my superhero concept!)
    Hercules Beetle Man, anybody?
