Our new Lagoon Jellies

I took some video of our new Lagoon Jellies last night. They are so graceful. They are about the size of a quarter and found in saltwater lakes and bays in the Indio Pacific. They can feed by ingesting plankton but they also have special algae living with them. These algae photosynthesize and therefore provide sugars for the jellies to feed on!

    Really cool video. I had no idea what a lagoon jelly was when I opened the posting, but I am glad that I did. It is both fascinating and mesmerizing to watch them swimming.
