Tank of jelly


Last time we went to Singapore, we checked out the aquarium, which was small but cool. The jellyfish were especially pretty.

yes, jellyfish are beautiful, especially when there is a big piece of glass separating them from me...

actually they wouldn't bother me at all (swimming with them, that is)-- if they didn't sting!

how big were they?

Mmm, pretty big I guess. Bigger than my hand. I don't think I've swum with jellyfish very much. Is that a Hawaii thing? Are they in New England too?

yeah, they're in new england, though I haven't seen them as much in recent yrs. when I was young it seemed like they were always in the water when we went to the beach. and there'd be a lot of beached jellyfish on the shoreline so you had to watch where you stepped.
I got stung by some when I was traveling in eastern Africa a long time ago. it was a little creepy because they're pretty invisible in the water, but you can feel the stings as you swim.
