FUN FACTS Moon jellyfish are typically translucent white, but may take on a pink, purple or orange hue depending on their last meal. Their four gastric pouches, or stomachs, can easily be seen through their transparent bodies. A fringe of hair-like tentacles can be found on the edge of the bell. These tentacles contain stinging cells that help the jellyfish get food and defend itself. Nematocysts of the moon jelly are too small to bother most humans.
