A very distant cousin of the jellyfish, this gelatinous, transparent, and bioluminescent creature is over 500 million years old. It is cannibalistic and hermaphroditic, has very few organs, and is 95% water. Comb jellies come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, and many emit a shimmering row of rainbow colours down their bodies.

 

水母的遠親,這種凝膠狀、透明的發光生物已有五億多年的歷史。他是同類相食和雌雄同體的,整體組成95%是水,器官很少。海胡桃有各種不同形狀及大小,許多都會在身體上散發一排閃閃發亮的色彩。
