Venus Girdle JellyFish

It is believed that we know more about outer space than our oceans. Oceans hide spectacular animals under the deep blue waters. Colors in the ocean don’t necessarily fade with depth. 

A bioluminescent, deep-sea comb jellyfish named Venus’ girdle is the proof. These jellyfish look like transparent rainbows in the ocean. They mostly swim around in tropical waters, and survive on a diet of small shellfish. They swim close to the surface of sea, and do not bear poisonous stings unlike jellyfish. Watch the video to catch a glimpse of these marine wonders, from the comfort of your couch.
