Cannonball Jellyfish


A very common jellyfish; worth around 10 cents each to make silicon. Poor things. Help identifying to species much appreciated!!


Behing the picture, there are tons of houses, so I guess it could count for the Urban Biodiversity mission. ;)

Gotta love the locals and their crazy experience, huh? :)

you can hold them not on the stingy side... that you can just pic them out of the water - that´s new for me

Hahaha that's what surprised me too!! Our boat master/marine life expert saw one bobbing around, and he just plain as day snatched it out of the blue!... literally. x)
