Feb 26th, 2016: PB & Rhizostoma luteum

Casual Friday lunch, Peanut Butter and Rhizostoma luteum, yum yum.
Now you're going to say(after that ain't funny), that picture's not right, the jellyfish is too big.



Wrong, the Rhizostoma luteum jellyfish can have a bell 2 ft in diameter and weigh close to 90 lbs.

Quote:
“The Giant Jellyfish was first discovered in the Western Mediterranean Sea in 1827. It is such a rare species that some scientists even doubted its existence. During the last couple of years, some specimens were stranded on the beaches of Morocco and Spain, and it could finally be proven that Rhizostoma luteum does indeed exist,” said Dagmar Schratter, director of Zoo Vienna.
I'm glad they're rare, I've had the misfortune of meeting their smaller cousins.
But these crazy Dr Moreau wannabes in Vienna, are breeding these monsters.
Quote:
The story behind this breeding success is as spectacular as the jellyfish itself. Schratter continued, “The marine researcher Karen Kienberger from Jellyfish Research, South Spain, collected an adult Giant Jellyfish in the coastal waters of South Spain for her scientific research. At the laboratory, she discovered that the jellyfish was sexually mature and collected planula larvae which she sent to Zoo Vienna.”

Almost nothing is known about this jellyfish. It was a real challenge even for the jellyfish experts at Zoo Vienna to successfully breed this species. But they were successful and raised 30 baby jellyfish from the planula to the polyp--- and finally to the jellyfish.
Eat them, eat them all... before they eat you.

Jelly fish are so weird, says this mammal.

And here's the one to find if you have to feed the entire clientele of an urban soup kitchen...bell size on these is known to reach 2 meters (nearly 7 feet). Not all the photos of it with divers are faked!
