It’s Monterey Bay Aquarium jelly time.
Well, almost. MBA will be opening a special exhibit called The Jellies Experience exclusively showcasing the world of gelatinous drifters starting March 31.
Among the stars of the show will be crystalline comb jellies, sporting rainbow pulsing mantles and the well-adorned flower-hat jelly (above). Also, count on trippin’ on some amazing day-glo corals while you’re at it.
MBA is the foremost authority in the world for jellyfish husbandry. Making their jellyfish exhibits some of the best in the world. Though some species are brought in from the wild, the team of scientists at the aquarium are experts in jelly breeding meaning many are “born” and raised on site.
