Yellyfish Lake.

North of the island of Koror at Rock Islands is an island with a lake which is since 10.000 years separated from the sea. Small underwater channel exchange fresh water with the sea. As they are separated and have no enemies the Yellyfish lost their poison tentacles and you could swim in the lake ... and we do it :-)

When the sun is behind the clouds hundreds, no thousands of Yellyfishs are coming up to the water surface. You swim like in bubbling bath tub (please have a look to the WS) - it is an impressive feeling to nudge in every motion on them. The sun breaks through the clouds - the process turn around - no yellyfish were seen at the water surface.

These Yellyfish are up to 12 cm great. Sometimes you could see a young Yellyfish under a greater Yellyfish. This isn't a child as our guide told us ... they don't want to swim :-)
