Ever seen a baby jelly? This clip shows the tiny ephyrae of South American sea nettles (Chrysaora plocamia). They’ll get more colorful as they mature, and can grow to almost three feet in diameter. We’re always experimenting with new species behind the scenes, and you may see them soon. If so, it will be the first time ever exhibited!
