Moon Jellies

Jellyfish are commonly known to be a potentially hazardous animal because of their capability to inflict painful stings. What isn’t as widely known is just how diverse this group is. Jellies can be large like the Lion’s Mane Jelly or so small as to nearly be invisible like some of the very small and potentially deadly Box Jelly of the South Pacific. The Moon Jellies in this display get up to the size of a dinner plate and are relatively harmless to humans unless found in large numbers due to their small stinging cells.
