Black Sea Nettle (Chrysaora achlyos)
Also known as the black jellyfish, the black sea nettle is a species of true jellyfish found throughout the Western seaboard of the Pacific Ocean. Like other scyphozoan jellies the black sea nettle is carnivorous and will feed on any plankton that swim into its stinging tentacles. Its sting is powerful enough to kill or stun small animals but will only cause a painful sting that will last for about forty minutes in humans.
I visited Sea Life last week and the moon jellyfish were absolutely gorgeous.
