My name is Daphne. Recently, I decided to diversify my jellyfish blog and add other invertebrates of the sea (octopus, starfish, sponges, cuttlefish, urchins, etc). You can find all the different types in my TAGS page. This is a queued animal blog. None of the photography is mine, unless stated otherwise. Send your requests to my ask, or just leave a question. Enjoy your stay.
Here is my Personal Blog.

    Don’t let those floppy “ears” fool you! The California sea hare can release a slimy cloud of irritating purplish ink to confuse or distract hungry predators.

    "Dustbin-lid Jellyfish" (Rhizostoma pulmo)

    Also known as the barrel or frilly-mouthed jellyfish, the dustbin-lid jellyfish is a species of Rhizostomatid jellyfish which occurs in the northeast Atlantic, and in the Adriatic and Mediterranean Seas. It is also recorded in the southern Atlantic off the western South African coast. Rhizostoma pulmo can typically reach bell diameters of 40 cm (16 in), but 90 cm (35 in) individuals have been recorded as well.
