yesterday, i went to the beach 👍🏻 it was pretty glorious – there was sun, drifting and sand (because beach).
there was also a load of random jellyfish just chilling on the sand … they probably should have been in the sea 😳 #awks. anyway, jellyfish fact incoming 🙌🏻
#tdil that jellyfish are sci-fi beasts that have the ability to clone themselves?! 😱
well, scientists are pretty certain that they can 👨🏻🔬 … if they can, then it’s a pretty mental skill to have! just think, you’d never have to be lonely 🙈
there are a couple of examples of this mental behaviour … but the particular one that i read about occurred in australia, at the townsville aquarium.
basically, they had a cassiopea jellyfish that had been injured 😢. it lived by itself and never had any companions … yet one day, marine biologists found it surrounded by almost 200 other tiny jellyfish! #magic
the marine biologists at townsville aquarium think that, far from this jellyfish being the animal kingdom version of mary, the damaged tissue cells that fell off the injured jellyfish turned into clones of the original! 😅
sadly, jellyfish 1.0 passed away 😭 at least it had 200 other versions of itself to keep on living forever 🙌🏻
right, this was only a short one today 🙈 but it was still pretty darn interesting 😬
anyhew, i gotz lots to do today 🙃 so i gotta run 😅
catch ya tomoz 🙂 #tdil
i’ll be honest, the three posts before this one were deffo 100% better 😂 you should go read them ->here<-
(i think those two rather beautiful jellyfish are the same as the one in this blog post 🤔 regardless, they’re nicer than what i saw earlier 😂 license ->here<-)
