Jellies

Posted by

One of the most interesting exhibits in the Monterey Bay Aquarium is Jellies.

Jellies don't have bones, brains, teeth, blood or fins—and they're more than 95 percent water. Yet they thrive in all the world's oceans, and to its darkest depths. Jellies are strange and captivatingly beautiful, making them one of the Aquarium's all-time favorite animals.
