(New Scientist)   "It's huge. And it's vivid technicolour purple. Can you imagine anything more amazing than a school of meter-long purple jellyfish with long oral arms?" If you guessed 'Australian link', have a cookie. Give it to the jellyfish if you don't want it   (newscientist.com) divider line 18

I wonder if jellyfish can be dyed by introducing colorants to the water. Now there's a way to screw with researchers.

Considering it's Australia, they should just be glad it's not a school of box jellyfish being carried forth by an army of blue-ring octopuses intent on killing every living thing in the water.

"Long oral arms"? Sounds more like Japan.

Why yes it's huge, but it's only a little purple.  At times.

I think any link to some horrible creature that can kill you just by looking at you is now an "Australian link".

When I lived in Australia, I got stung in the left thigh by a blue bottle jellyfish. It spread to my right thigh. Do the math.

The most dangerous thing in Australia is the sun. Anyone who lives in Australia and has fair skin should seriously consider moving to a more suitable climate.
