Spotted Lagoon Jellies in Jellies Invasion!
We have spotted lagoon jellies now on exhibit in Jellies Invasion: Oceans Out of Balance!
Did you know? Instead of a single mouth, this species of jelly has many small mouth openings on its oral arms, which capture plankton.
These jellies love the sunlight! It fuels the growth of symbiotic algae in their tissues, giving them a greenish-brown to blue color in the wild.
Spotted lagoon jellies can be found throughout the South Pacific!
Be sure to check back every Friday to find out what’s happening!
