Jellyfish City

Posted May 21, 2007 8:41 a.m. EDT

As you're getting ready for that Memorial Day at the beach, here's a YouTube video you should see!  It's from a lake in Palau (that's way out in the Pacific, between Guam and Indonesia).   That's a mess of jellyfish!

From the poster on YouTube:

"The jelly fish came to this lake in Palau through a tunnel which connected the sea and the lake long time ago. Now the tunnel have closed, and the jelly fish came to have no poison in an environment where there's no predator. They live by photosynthesis because they cannot feed on anything in this lake. This lake is such a heaven to them that there are just so many of them living here."

Glad to know they have no poison, but I still wouldn't want to swim there.  You?
