With elegant fluttering arms, it’s the Indonesian Sea Nettle, in the column tank at the entrance of the Jellyfish Fantasy Hall. ~ ​新江ノ島水族館(Enoshima Aquarium)

Happy Holidays from the Monterey Bay Aquarium!

Tips to make the season bright:

When storms make rough seas, what do seals do? Find a comfy beach and nap it out!

Though only a few inches big, bell jellies have at least 100 wispy tentacles and multiple sets of eyespots.

Eels have an extra set of jaws in their throats to help secure prey—and hit those high notes!

In addition to looking stylish, blackfooted penguin coats provide a double layer of insulation: densely packed feathers over a soft layer of down.

Happy holidays to you and your loved ones!
