nettle jellyfish


montereybayaquarium These brown sea nettles (Chrysaora fuscescens) washed in to Monterey Harbor a few weeks ago, part of a massive bloom millions strong.

Dive in Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary and sometimes you’ll be treated to the beautiful view of an Atlantic sea nettle. (Just don’t get too close – those tentacles sting!) 

Sea jellies like these are classified as cnidarians, a group of animals that also include corals and sea anemones.

@l0vegl0wsinthedark ask drarry is brilliant. On one of her recent answers she confirmed Draco’s favorite animal was jellyfish, so i had to draw him in a jellyfish shirt Harry got him for his birthday. 

I would like to believe Harry saw it in the girls section at some muggle store and was like “Thats the jellyfish draco’s obsessed with… i cant believe i know that….” 

and of course he has to pair it was his jellyfish hat that @cieliavalentine drew on him. i just really love these two ok
