pretty jelly

I've got heaps on at work at the moment, but there's always time to share a lovely picture :) So here's the stunning Australian spotted jellyfish, Phyllorhiza punctata. It's native to Australian waters but has apparently become an invasive species elsewhere (eg in the Gulf of Mexico).

And yes, I found it on FB: Photo: Mister No [ITA], http://on.fb.me/18ssHJl, via Biologia-Vida with Luis Balderas Solis

If it's Australian I'm guessing it's lethal.

you shouldn't jump to conclusions about the fauna across the ditch. I mean, the husband licked ants there & lived to tell the tale :)

He *licked* ants? That's a story I'd be interested to hear!

Large green ants in the Daintree. Apparently they taste like peppermint.
