Jellyfish at the Monterey Bay Aquarium

The Monterey Bay Aquarium, located in Monterey, California, consistently ranks as one of the best aquariums in the United States. Some of their biggest exhibits are their sea otters, the large kelp forest, and their huge exhibition of jelly fish titled Jellies: Living Art. These jellies displayed here are sea nettle jellyfish, the same as in my previous upload. This species is found in the Atlantic, and while its sting ranges from moderate to severe, it is not particularly lethal to humans. WS photo shows the entire tank for a sense of scale.
