Jellyfish May Be The Source To Immortality!

Filed under: Science!Sea Creatures

Immortality is something that seems completely inaccessible, but recent studies show that one sea creature, Turritopsis Dohrnii, has already revealed how to live forever!!

Say whaaaaat?!?

The entity, which is better known as the Immortal Jellyfish, was found on the ocean floor in 1988 by a German marine-biology student, Christian Sommer while he was snorkeling off the cliffs of Portofino.

Molecular paleobiologist, Kevin J. Peterson expressed that "there’s a shocking amount of genetic similarity between jellyfish and human beings," adding:

A Swim In Jellyfish Lake

Filed under: Sea CreaturesAmazingCrazzzzy

Sarosh Jacob took his Canon DSLR to a lake called Jellyfish Lake.

And what did he do?

He dove right in.

The jellyfish were trapped on the island thousands of years ago when the oceans receded and had no predators so they evolved and lost most of their stingers.

Check out the above beautiful video.

Jellyfish Are The New Lava Lamp!

Filed under: FishCrazzzzy

Introducing the perfect pet for stoners!

This is the fist aquarium made just for jellyfish! Other salt water aquariums will suck up the creature thats 90% water. But now, thanks to Kickstarter donors designer Alex Andon has created a way to keep your floating friends as pets.

Huffington Post explains how the tank works:

The Desktop Jellyfish Tank pulls water through a layer of rocks at the bottom of the tank. The water is then pulled up one side of the cylindrical tank to the surface. It then goes back down the other side and is sucked up once again by the rocks.

What's cooler than having an exotic pet? Having a tank that lights up with multii-colored LED lights! Yeah, no one is trying to hide the stoner appeal.

Each fish will cost $39 and will be shipped overnight from the company’s breeding center. You can also buy frozen plankton from Jellyfish Art, which is what the little critters dine on. A $350 donation will get you a spot on the waiting list.

Click HERE to get your spot and get more information on this entrancing new pet.

Are Jellyfish Trying To Kill Us?

Are Jellyfish Trying To Kill Us?

And we thought sharks were dangerous!

An invasion of jellyfish into a cooling water pool at a Scottish nuclear power plant kept its nuclear reactors offline on Wednesday, a phenomenon which may grow more common in future, scientists said.

Apparently nuclear power plants draw water from nearby seas or rivers to cool down their reactors, but if the filters which keep out marine animals and seaweed are clogged, the station shuts down to maintain temperature and safety standards.

We're not experts on nuclear science or anyshiz — but we're pretty sure this could cause some lagit radiation and/or explosions.

But, we hear everything's fine and they are currently working to clear the jellyfish from the waters near the power station.

Plan foiled for now, jellyfish!
