The Cotylorhiza Tuberculata, also known as the Fried Egg Jellyfish* (or the Mediterranean Jelly) is commonly found in warmer waters, such as the Mediterranean Sea, Aegean Sea, and the Adriatic Sea.  They are normally 17cm (~6.7in) in diameter, but can sometimes reach 50cm.  Fried Egg Jellies feed on zooplankton and reproduce asexually.  Unlike most jellies, Fried Egg Jellies can swim on their own, without relying on the current for movement.  Also, these jellies have such a mild sting that it causes very little, if any, pain to humans, which is a good thing for me!  If I ever saw one of these jellies, I’d definitely try and pet one!
