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, Palau. I want go here bad!!! I would love to swim with the jellyfish! Maybe one day.......
Jellyfish Lake is a marine lake located on Eil Malk island in Palau, in the Rock Islands, a group of small, mostly uninhabited islands in Palau's Southern Lagoon, between Koror and Peleliu. Jellyfish Lake is one of Palau's most famous sites (snorkeling only). It is notable for the millions of non-stinging golden jellyfish which migrate horizontally across the lake daily.
early morning at lake wakatipu, new zealand. i love these colors and the composition of this image.
Not all jellies sting, but the sea nettle does. It hunts tiny drifting animals by trailing those long tentacles and frilly mouth-arms, all covered with stinging cells. When the tentacles touch prey, the stinging cells paralyze it and stick tight. From there, the prey is moved to the mouth-arms and finally to the mouth, where it's digested.
