What's the coolest jellyfish?

Asked by segdeha (1707points) March 2nd, 2008

As this site’s theme is jellyfish, I thought I’d ask Flutherites which they think is the coolest. I vote for the Bluebottle Jellyfish

I’d have to say the Lion’s Mane Jellyfish. it is the largest and “coolest” because it lives in artic waters. Great question by the way! It made me look at some pretty neat stuff on jellyfish!!

Portuguese Man o’ War is lethal and beautiful but officially not a jellyfish. So treatment, if stung, would be different.

Man o’ War

gailcalled , Your link leads to a definition of portugese, not the Man o” War. here’s a new link. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portuguese_Man_o’_War

Black Sea Nettle which is rare and recently visited San Diego http://www.nbcsandiego.com/slideshow/news/4773520/detail.html?qs=1;s=1;dm=ss;p=news;w=750
or
Turritopsis nutricula because it’s virtually imortal

However uberbatman’s choice looks pretty cool
