Just Jelly

Happy Monday! I know it’s been awhile, and for that I apologize. I’ve missed you, and I do hope you’ll forgive me for my absence. 😉

Today we head back to the National Aquarium to take a closer look at  jellyfish. Contrary to popular belief, jellyfish don’t just float along with the ocean currents, but rather pulse their umbrella-shaped bell to move in any direction. Their stinging tentacles are used to capture prey; in fact, some jellyfish have tentacles up to 100 feet long! Existing in every ocean, they’ve been around for over 500 million years, which makes them the oldest multi-organ animal. Pretty darn cool if you ask me!

Thanks for stopping by today! Please feel free to leave a little “hello” down below, as I always love to hear from you! 🙂
