Crown Jellyfish | Coronatae

“ It is a large jellyfish, reaching 50-60 cm in diameter, with multiple wart-like projections on top of the central mound of its bell, which is surrounded by a moat.  The thin frilled skirt around the crown is used for swimming.  Its main body is blue-purple, its eight oral arms are brown and highly divided into a large, curly-looking surface area resembling a cauliflower (hence this jellyfish’s other common name, Cauliflower Jellyfish).” -

Golden Jellyfish | Mastigias

Located on an uninhabited rock island off the coast of Koror in Palau, Jellyfish Lake is one of 70 saltwater lakes on this South Pacific archipelago that were once connected to the ocean, but are now cut off.

The isolated lakes became the perfect setting for a jellyfish explosion, which some speculate were trapped in the lake 12,000 years ago after a rise in sea levels post-Ice Age. Feeding on quick-growing algae and with no predators to keep them in check, the jellyfish now completely pack the small lake. Though the jellyfish do have stingers, they are too small to be felt by humans.” -

Golden Jellyfish | Mastigias

"Palau has an inland saltwater lake which is unique in the world, called Jellyfish Lake. The limestone allows an exchange of salinity with the open sea, while keeping organisms trapped. Long ago, this lake was somehow connected to the sea and Jellyfish were trapped in the lake. When the connection to the sea was broken, the Jellyfish had no natural food and few predators. They evolved into a symbiotic relationship with algae!"
