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.
