Exotic jellyfish

Exotic jellyfish

There is evidence jellyfish have been roaming the seas for 500 million years. Today jellyfish are found in every ocean, from the surface to the deep sea. Some are huge, the largest is the lion's mane jellyfish with a diameter of 7' 6" (2.29 m) and tentacles 120' (37 m) long. Freshwater species are less than 1" (25 mm) in diameter, colourless and do not sting. Filmed by Daniel Regner at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland.

Latest comment: It has been discovered that some jellyfish cell's have the ablility to "reset" themselves to an earlier state thus becoming imortal. It is thought by some that the jellyfish could be the oldest living organism on the planet with some individuals living to 100,000years or more.
