You can never predict the crazy critters cruising by the Aquarium’s back deck!
UPDATE! Hey everyone reading this! We heard back from our jelly aquarist Wyatt, and this siphonophore is actually in the genus Rosacea, not Praya—apparently it had been mislabelled for years in the gelatinous zooplankter book! It is in the Prayidae family of siphonophores, but the lack of taxonomic clarity in the siphonophore family has led this animal to be misidentified with Praya in a few different places—we’re glad to offer this update to you all! Happy jelly watching!
