Andrea Mangoni, a worker in Venice, told Reuters that due to the low tide and low traffic amidst Italy's lockdown restrictions, marine life has been appearing in the now still waters of the canal.  

"I was able to film a jellyfish that was swimming close to the San Marco square, only few inches below the water surface," Mangoni said. 

Attilio Rinaldi, a professor from the Department of Biological, Geological, and Environmental Sciences at Italy's University of Bologna, confirmed with Reuters that the jellyfish species seen in the video is called the rhisostoma pulmo.

Absolutely crazy how magical it is to see all this marine life in those canals!
