Beautiful find Kozoga,congrats on the SOTD and thanks for sharing
Congratulations kozoga, your Mauve Stinger is our Spotting of the Day:"There's something eerily beautiful about this Mauve Stinger (Pelagia noctiluca), our Spotting of the Day! Pelagia noctiluca (class Scyphozoa) is a widely distributed small pelagic jellyfish. It is varying in color but generally pink, mauve or golden, and is also bioluminescent. P. noctiluca is the most venomous and abundant jellyfish of the Mediterranean Sea, and undergoes sporadic blooms which can cause public heath concerns. Like all jellyfish P. noctiluca possesses stinging organoids, called nematocysts, which can discharge a mixture of toxic compounds into preys and predators.For more information : https://buff.ly/2NQswBY "Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/projectnoah/pho...Twitter:https://twitter.com/projectnoah/status/1...
