Sea Nettle Anyone?

Of the four hours spent visiting the Monterey Bay Aquarium, I gladly gave up two watching the jellies. Not all jellies sting, but this sea nettle does as it trails it's long stinging tentacles and frilly mouth-arms. The tentacles paralyze the prey and it's then transported by the mouth-arms to the mouth cavity, where it is digested. Yum!
