Ocean Life Photography---Jellyfish lake in palau. stings hurt like hell, still gorgeous creatures
This crazy photo from the Yomiuri Shimbun shows a diver swimming amongst a swarm of giant jellyfish. These giant sea blobs, known as Echizen kurage (Nomura's jellyfish), inflict heavy damage on Japanese fisheries in the Sea of Japan each year.
Ocean Life Photography - jelly fish
Jellyfish Lake, Republic of Palau, Micronesia. The jellyfish evolved in the lake without any predators, and over time grew vegetarian and lost their ability to sting. Their red color is a result of an algae diet. The water in the lake is salty and connected underground to the ocean but not even the tiniest jellyfish can get in or out.

Jellyfish Lake, Republic of Palau, Micronesia. The lake was originally part of the ocean, but it was closed off and, over time, without any predators, the jelly fish grew vegetarian and lost their ability to sting. Add this to the bucket list!
41 Spectacular Places Around the World , Jellyfish Lake, Republic of Palau, Micronesia.
Republic of Palau, Micronesia - Ongeim'l Tketau ["Fifth Lake"] or "Jellyfish Lake" is a marine lake located on Eil Malk island. Although the lake is connected to the ocean, it is sufficiently isolated and under conditions that are different enough for the golden jellyfish, Mastigias cf. papua etpisoni, to have evolved substantially from their close relatives living in the nearby lagoons. They are now vegetarian and no longer posses the ability to sting.

Jellyfish - Probably not an animal per se.
Color Inspiration Jelly Belly - jellyfish are not fish at all. they are invertebrates, relatives of corals and sea anemones. a jelly has no head, brain, heart, eyes, nor ears. it has no bones either and is made up of 95% water

Jellyfish Swarm, Jellyfish Lake, Palau by David Doubilet
Jellyfish Lake on Eil Malk island in Palau. This Micronesian island is home to five marine lakes that contain Mastigias papua, the golden jellyfish. It’s thought that these jellyfish have lost their ability to sting, but they do – it’s just rarely strongly enough to be felt by humans. #photography #jelly #fish #diving #palau #travel

Jelly fish are beautiful! Russian biologist Alexander Semenov graduated in 2007 from Moscow State University’s zoology department where he studied invertebrate animals. Specifically: squid brains. Now he works as the chief of his diving team at the White Sea Biological Station, camera always in-hand, where he’s captured some of these extraordinary photographs of jellyfish and other wildlife.
Photographer Alexander Semenov has a degree in Zoology with a specialization in invertebrate animals, particularly squid brains. Rather than fear the uncomfortable sting of jellyfish, like most of us do, Semenov seeks them out, discovering the natural beauty and magnificence of these creatures in their own environment through underwater photography.
Jellyfish. Mother Nature is truly beautiful
jelly fish - you can see how turtles and other sea creatures would mistake a plastic bag for jellyfish. Sad.

Wouldnt you think that an animal that lives within a poisonous environment (such as Man-of-War fish living within the tentacles of the Portuguese Man-o-War) would develop a better system to avoid being stung than being agile and extra bendy?" animalworld: PORTUGUESE MAN OF WAR MAN OF WAR FISHPhysalia physalis Nomeus gronovii© Seth Patterson The Portuguese Man o’ War is not one animal, but is actually comprised of colonies of invertebrate, jelly-like marine animals of the family: Physaliidae glomming together. These pelagic hydroids (or hydrozoans) colonize and are infamous for their very painful, powerful sting. It would seem wise for marine life to steer clear of the Man of War’s stinging tentacles however it shares an interdependence with a variety of transient marine fish, including shepherd fish, clownfish, yellow jack and one fish specialized to live within its tentacles—the man of war fish. The man-of-war fish is generally found in open sea or close to the Portuguese man of war, after which it is named. It is found in all tropical and subtropical oceans. The fish is striped with blackish-blue blemishes covering its body, and the caudal fin is extremely forked. It grows to a length is up to 15.5 inches (39 cm). As unlikely as it seems, this fish, rather than using mucus (like the clownfish) to prevent stings, appears to uses highly agile swimming to physically avoid tentacles. The fish has a very high number of vertebrate (41), which adds to its agility and uses its pectoral fins for swimming — a feature common in fish who specialize in maneuvering in tight spaces. It also has a complex skin design containing at least one antigen to the man-of-war’s stinging toxin. The fish seems to be ten times more resistant to the toxin than other fish.
