Photographer's Notes:

I took a day trip recently with my family to the Aquarium at Fort Fisher. This is such an amazing place to visit, whether you live in the area or are just visiting. Since Jellyfish are among my favorite animals I decided to share a photo of one of the three different types they have there, the Sea Nettle.

Jellyfish do not have specialized digestive, osmoregulatory, central nervous, respiratory, or circulatory systems. Jellies do not have a brain or eyes, although some have ocelli, which is a light sensitive organ that helps the Jellyfish determine up from down. They have very limited movement but can use their hydrostatic skeleton to accomplish pulsation-like movement, which is the typical movement most see. Jellyfish are made up of about 90% water. I believe this is why I find them so intriguing.
