Moon Jelly

Aurelia aurita


A small translucent disc shaped jellyfish. It has small tentacles hanging down from the bell.


I’ve read various accounts of their stings. Some say it doesn’t have any effect on people, others say it has about the same effect as a bee sting. Roundhouse Aquarium, Manhattan Beach, California
