There will be lots of these lovely things (I have NO way of knowing if they're male or female). The aquarium staff refers to them as animals. Ok.
In the entrance area to the jellies, there is a quite large inverted concave oval tank... and these swim around and around.
The music is lovely... very appropriate and the effect, especially on the kind of day (damp and foggy), when we were there, the aquarium is lightly attended and being alone with the music and the swirling fish is quite wonderful.
Up.... around, down..... back, forth, up, around down, back and forth...... wonderfully elegant design!
In one of the main tanks.
These are hatchling jellies. If you have not been to an aquarium where there are jellies, it's a delightful experience.
The eggs begin to become jellies, and, sort of lie around on the bottom until they 'get' that they can sort of pop up and float about. This appears to be the tentacle free version.
Here is a confluence of jellies. I didn't ask whether they ever get untangled or how they manage this.
I doubt they experience consternation... but how DO they get all straightend OUT again?
Maybe this is the jellyfish equivalent of a 'group hug'.
Or... maybe not.
A group of little floaties.
This is beginning to remind me of Tribbles.
Ah... THERE go a few!
Jellies come in many different varieties.
I'm told this is a sunfish. Ok. He (?) gets several shots... just because he/she is so interesting! Well, not to talk to, (I wouldn't know) but to look at.
Is it just possible that these denizens wait till opening time each day for THEIR entertainment?
Ever wonder what happens to ALL the images captured on all the various media?
These look a bit like ladies in pantaloons whose skirts have been blown up.
Nowhere does it say 'Starkist'.
I THINK this is a lion's mane jelly
Ah... now more like space ships coming in for landings.
