I didn’t intend to blog about jellyfish, I just happened to draw one with pastels today at Art Club, then only having a short time slot before going out to celebrate my daughter’s 16th birthday, I was unusually stuck for something to say for today’s blog and feeling under pressure.
So here are some interesting facts about jellyfish and there is a great deal more:
They don’t have brains, just nerve nets.
There are over 10,000 species of jellyfish compared to just one human species.
Some of them can glow in the dark.
They can clone themselves.
They start life as a static polyp and then go on to move as we know them.
Not all of them have tentacles.
Lastly, some have been known to eat peanut butter, not sure who or why this was discovered. Perhaps Sunpat were looking for a new market.
Ok, so maybe jellyfish isn’t your thing or you knew all of this already.
We live in an amazing world, populated by some amazing life forms.
How often do we stop to find out anything about them? How often do we spend any time in the natural world?
There is a world all around us, don’t miss it.
