White-spotted Jellyfish at the Cal Academy- 02.24.12

calacademyjelly-02.jpg The latest from our resident zoologist and London-based editor, Justine Aw.

Another of my highlights at the Steinhart Aquarium at the California Academy of Sciences were these delightful jellies! The Australian or white-spotted jellyfish (Phyllorhiza punctata), are a beautiful species native to the Western Pacific ocean, but also found in North America, where they are an invasive species. See more jellies on the next page!
