Moon Jellyfish

This month, we are celebrating the beauty of the Moon Jellyfish. Named after their translucent, moonlike circular bells, moon jellies have a short, fine fringe (cilia) rather than long tentacles. Common along UK coastlines, they are found worldwide, in both temperate and tropical waters. Their colouration changes depending on their diet - they take on a pink / lavender hue when feeding on crustaceans or an orange tint, if they eat brine shrimp.
