today i learned – sun 23rd dec 2018

it’s nearly christmas, so i should probably do an xmas fact … meh πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

#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»

catch ya tomoz πŸ™‚ #tdil
