In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous – Aristotle
And I find jelly fishes to be extremely marvelous. With 95 percent water and no bones, brains, blood, teeth or fins, they are simply extraordinary.
Jelly fishes use their tentacles to catch and inactivate their prey. Most jellies have mild toxins that don’t bother humans. Some of them can be as painful as a bee sting. However, sea wasp (box jelly) is the most dangerous and its sting can be fatal.
All the above jellyfishes were photographed at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
