today i learned – sat 28th oct 2017

yesterday, i went to the beach πŸ‘πŸ» 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 πŸ™ŒπŸ»

#tdil that jellyfish are sci-fi beasts that have the ability to clone themselves?! 😱

well, scientists are pretty certain that they can πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ”¬ … if they can, then it’s a pretty mental skill to have! just think, you’d never have to be lonely πŸ™ˆ

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! πŸ˜…

sadly, jellyfish 1.0 passed away 😭 at least it had 200 other versions of itself to keep on living forever πŸ™ŒπŸ»

right, this was only a short one today πŸ™ˆ but it was still pretty darn interesting 😬

anyhew, i gotz lots to do today πŸ™ƒ so i gotta run πŸ˜…

catch ya tomoz πŸ™‚ #tdil


i’ll be honest, the three posts before this one were deffo 100% better πŸ˜‚ you should go read them ->here<-

(i think those two rather beautiful jellyfish are the same as the one in this blog post πŸ€” regardless, they’re nicer than what i saw earlier πŸ˜‚ license ->here<-)
