Lion's Mane Jellyfish, World's Largest Jellyfish
2008-05-17 00:43:00
The Lion's Mane jellyfish is the worlds largest jellyfish specie. It's bell diameter can grow up to 2.5 meters. The largest recorded specimen had a bell (body) with a diameter of 2.3 m (7 feet 6 inches) and the tentacles reached 36.5 m (120 feet). It was found washed up on the shore of Massachusetts Bay in 1870. It lives mainly in cold, boreal waters of the Arctic, northern Atlantic and northern Pacific Oceans.A common species, the lion's mane jellyfish is well known to divers for its painful, but seldom fatal stings; they are toxic and can cause severe burns. Most encounters cause only temporary pain and localized redness.Although capable of attaining a bell diameter of 2.5 m (8 feet), these jellyfish are highly variable in size; those found in lower latitudes are much smaller than their far northern counterparts with bells about 50 cm (20 inches) in diameter. The tentacles of larger specimens may trail as long as 30 m (100 feet) or more. These extremely sticky tentacles are gro...

Interview: Kristen Collier, author of 'Joy the Jellyfish'
2007-12-18 15:59:00
Kristen Collier's first children's book, Joy the Jellyfish (Dragonfly Publishing, 2007) is a 24-paged picture book that tells the story of an almost invisible and shy jellyfish called Joy who is on a mission to make new friends.The picture book was followed by Dreamchaser (Guardian Angel Publishing, 2007), a novel for young adults which Kristen co-authored with her husband, Kevin.In a recent interview, Kristen Collier spoke about her concerns as a writer.When did you start writing?Five years ago, in September, I was at the library waiting to take a test for a job. I’d heard that if you wrote your goals down you were more likely to achieve them, so I took out the only piece of paper in my purse -- an envelope -- and wrote on the back of it my goals.The next day the story for my novel King of Glory came to mind. And now, five years later, I finally have a publisher, not for my novel, but for a picture book called Joy the Jellyfish.What did you do to achieve this end?I spent a lot ...

The Jellyfish
2007-11-26 13:23:00
No bones. No brains. But what a sting!The sting of some "jellies," such as this sea nettle (left), can be deadly. Others are harmless to humans.They look like blobs when washed up on the beach. But in the water jellies are graceful. They range in size from about 1 inch (2 1/2 centimeters) to 200 feet (61 meters) long. They have been drifting through the world's oceans for more than 650 million years.Jellyfish are not fish at all. They are invertebrates, relatives of corals and sea anemones (uh-NEH-muh-neez). A jelly has no head, brain, heart, eyes, nor ears. It has no bones, either. But that's no problem! To capture prey for food, jellies have a net of tentacles that contain poisonous, stinging cells. When the tentacles brush against prey (or, say, a person's leg), thousands of tiny stinging cells explode, launching barbed stingers and poison into the victim. Where there's water?from icy polar seas to tropical Pacific shores?there are jellies. Scientists estimate there may be 2,...

Oldest Known Jellyfish Fossils Found
2007-11-02 11:04:00
The oldest known fossils of jellyfish have been found in rocks in Utah that are more than 500 million years old, a new study reports। The fossils are an unusual discovery because soft-bodied creatures, such as jellyfish, rarely survive in the fossil record, unlike animals with hard shells or bones."The fossil record is biased against soft-bodied life forms such as jellyfish, because they leave little behind when they die," said study member Bruce Lieberman of the University of Kansas.These jellyfish left their lasting imprint because they were deposited in fine sediment, rather than coarse sand. The film that the jellyfish left behind shows a clear picture, or "fossil snapshot," of the animals."You can see a distinct bell-shape, tentacles, muscle scars and possibly even the gonads," said study team member Paulyn Cartwright, also of KU.The rich detail of the fossils allowed the team to compare the cnidarian (the phylum to which jellyfish, coral and sea anemones belong) fossils to m...

Thursday, December 13* Maggie’s plane leaves in three hours, and a car is picking her up.  For us, no awkward hugs in front of the metal detectors at the airport.  Instead, I wait in the sun room like someone about to undergo day-long tests at the doctor’s.  Flipping through a three-year-old National Geographic, I wonder if I’ll ever climb the Himalayas.  A line of thought as grandiose as it is tenuous.  Or wait—maybe not.  Who’s to say I can’t enroll in rock climbing school once I flail out of this financial mess?  I can hire a guide, join an expedition.  I can begin again. Speaking of which, here comes she comes.  Maggie and I are still locked in our same little game of chicken:  who’s going to say good-bye first?  She plunks herself beside me with a teasing sing-song. “Hey, sweetie, want to go on a walk?” “Why?” “Because that way we can walk and talk together without feeling awkward about looking ...

After some days of inactive the blog comes back :) I hope that new post will be published daily.New post is about Jellyfish.Jellyfish have been around for 650 million years. They were here before dinosaurs and sharks! Scientists think there may be 2000 species of jellyfish. They come in all sorts of color: from pale pink or blue to bright orange-red or screaming yellow.Some jellyfish are transparent. Jellies also range in size from about two and a half centimeters to more than two meters long. Jellyfish are more than 95 % water and have no heart, bones, or brain, and no real eyes.Where there?s water ? from icy polar seas to tropical Pacific shores ? there are jellyfish.Some of them live in fresh water. All jellyfish sting, but not all jellyfish have poison, that hurts humans. Of the 2000 species of jellyfish only about 70 seriously harm or occasionally kill people.The most dangerous jellyfish are:- Australian box jellyfish;- Lion?s mane;- Portuguese man-of-war;- Sea Nettle.The Austr...
