Some young fish may take refuge from predators among jellyfish tentacles, however, in this case it appears that the fish was swallowed by the jellyfish.
A photographer found a dead jellyfish while walking on a British beach, displaying through its transparent abdomen what may have been its last meal, a whole fish.
The fish, whose species is yet to be identified, was inside a compass jellyfish (Chrysora hysoscala), which has brown V-shaped spots that resemble compass lines.

Photographer, Ian Watkin, Said to the Daily Mail tabloid, who stumbled upon the strange image during a morning walk with their dogs on a Cornish beach on August 4.
According to the Cornwall Wildlife Trust, some young fish take refuge from predators among jellyfish tentacles.
“Unfortunately, it looks like it was attacked and turned into a Medusa lunch,” he said.
