    Default New "Rainbow Glow" jellyfish found


    Jellyfish expert Lisa Gershwin caught the unnamed species in early March while swimming near a jetty off the Australian island of Tasmania with a "phototank"—a small aquarium that makes it easy to photograph sea life.
    The jellyfish does not emit its own light, as bioluminescent creatures do. (Related: "Monster Glowing Squid Caught on Camera.")
    Rather, its rainbow glow emanates from light reflecting off the creature's cilia, small hairlike projections that beat simultaneously to move the jellyfish through the water.
    (See a blue jellyfish swarm photo taken in Australia.)
    Though the glowing jelly is Gershwin's 159th species discovery in Australia, she still finds the discovery "simply splendid."
    For one, the jelly is relatively large—5 inches (13 centimeters) long.
    The new species also belongs to Ctenophora, a "strange and poorly known" group of animals, said Gershwin, curator of natural science at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Tasmania. The invertebrate is also incredibly fragile—it shatters as soon as it touches a net, she said. "So it begs the question," Gershwin said by email, "of how many fragile species are out there, right under our noses, that we have overlooked. … "

    On closer look it does look like those necklaces.

    If you go to an adult novelty store you can get candy panties and such. At my wedding shower I got the garter.
