Jellyfish

In Chicago, we visited the Shedd Aquarium, a place I had never been to before.


While we were there, there was a jellyfish exhibit going on and they are really quite amazing (and beautiful creatures). The excerpt below is taken straight from the aquarium's website: *

"For 500 million years, the seemingly simple systems of sea jellies have thrived in the world's oceans. Learn how jellies' bodies are 95% water and their feeding arms can grow up to 8 feet long; how drifting with the current, jellies travel thousands of miles; and how the tiniest jelly could nestle into a contact lens, while the largest couldn't squeeze into a minivan. Enter this mesmerizing world of jellies, where your hosts are these spectacular creatures—some beautiful, some mysterious, but every one of them fascinating".

* Yes, I took these photos. I did not copy them from the Shedd's website.
