Bizarre new jellyfish discovered


Bizarre, among other things, because it doesn't have tentacles - it has arms:

He, neat....they had a whole display and lecture on jellyfish in particular here in the local zoo.
I didn't get to see it only read about it in the paper, but it was some really interesting stuff.

Jellyfish appear superficially boring, but if you ever see them covered properly on a nature program they are absolutely fascinating. No, I don't have any books on them - maybe I should. ;D

Jellyfish may be regarded as structurally primitive, but their life-cycle itself is truly complex. Plus there's something about glowing jellyfish in deep water that says "outer space".
