For me, jellyfish have always been...

...those things you stay far away from at the beach. Strickened surfers teaching lessons little kids remember. And they're those pretty things behind safety glass at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Now, I know that they are more than something to fear or dismiss as just another pretty. They are also amazing! Hope you think so too :)

From Ted-Ed on YouTube:
'Some are longer than a blue whale. Others are barely larger than a grain of sand. One species unleashes one of the most deadly venoms on earth; another holds a secret that’s behind some of the greatest breakthroughs in biology. They’ve inhabited the ocean for at least half a billion years, and they’re still flourishing. David Gruber investigates the secret powers of jellyfish.'
