Finally, here are more photos of jellyfish from the Monterey Bay Aquarium from our recent trip there with my family. I find this one fascinating because if you look at it just the right way (relax your eyes like you’re looking at one of those Magic Eye posters) it appears 3D. Yeah, that was an accident, but pretty awesome isn’t it?
And just because I know you love to examine their gooey jellyness that makes you wanna reach out and squish them between your fingers like a stress ball or bread dough, here’s a closeup! Watch out for those stingers!
What is there to say about a beautiful red jellyfish floating in a solid blue background? That I want to take a big bite out of it’s cushy muffin-like surface? Ouch.
I didn’t realize how awesome these things are until catching the exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium while my parents and niece were in town for a visit. I just wish they didn’t have such a potential to hurt me. I mean, seriously, we learned that there are a couple specific breeds of jellyfish that can kill a person in minutes…or seconds…well, some frighteningly small amount of time.
I made Dave promise he’d pee on me if I got stung by one.
