What's Included

With a body that lacks advanced organs and is 98% water, it’s amazing that jellies have been swimming in our oceans for over 500 million years. We will discuss the simplicity of the jelly and discover some of their specialized adaptations used to capture prey. We will learn which jellies we might encounter in the Gulf around Sanibel, which ones are safe to pick up, and why we sometimes find them blooming in masses near our shorelines.
