The flower hat jelly (Olindias formosa) is a rare species of jellyfish occurring primarily in Brazil, Argentina, and off southern Japan. Characterized by lustrous tentacles that coil and adhere to its rim when not in use, the flower hat jelly’s bell is translucent and pinstriped with opaque bands, making it easily recognizable.

Its sting is nonlethal but painful, and its diet consists mostly of small fishes. The flower hat jelly can grow to be about 15cm (6 inches) in diameter. – wiki

    Um….. I like jellyfish. It’s one of the most clearly amaizing species of life to look at and study. I want to be an marine biologist when i get out of high school(12th grade currently). But i would really like to be an marine photographer; beca/ you can capture the beauty of so many animals in their own natural habbitat. I like those pic’s, but i think i can do better (lol-laugh/laughing out loud).
