Wondrous Beauties #WW

top-post-mark

Who doesn’t love those free-swimming, gelatinous marine beauties with a pulsating bell-shaped body and trailing tentacles?

Sharing a few fun facts about these wondrous creatures, this week (not going wordless at all, I know, I know!) 😉

Did you know that the Jellyfish is about 98 percent water, which explains why they virtually disappear when they wash up on a beach and dry out in the sun?

Another interesting fact about them is how the colour of some jellyfish is affected by their diet. For example, eating a lot of larval crustaceans can make the moon jellyfish pink or purple.

Imagine, if that ever happened to humans? Just a thought! 😀

  1. Wow! Mesmerizing creatures they are. I didn’t know the facts you shared about jelly fish, Esha. If humans had the property of changing color according to the food eaten, then maybe, we would have eaten better. 😀

    1. Thank you so much, Corinne! Singapore Zoo is an amazing place and I must have taken almost a hundred shots of all sorts of creatures (except the creepy crawlies, of course!) These creatures are such a delight to watch, believe me!

  2. Whoa! That must make them look amazing, considering they don’t eat like us humans! 😛
    Thank god we don’t share this feature with the jelly fish!
    Great shot, Esha!
