The appearance of a small jellyfish deforming into a huge plastic bag and preying on prey is a masterpiece

Although it is a fellow of the

Deep Staria Jellyfish that looks softly in the deep sea looks like a teru shaved.

When approaching, there is a brown mass at the top and a red object in the middle of the body.

The body of the jellyfish began to distort.

Shake the water greatly ……

I will change the shape.

The whole body has grown.

Hold the red object firmly. As you approach, you can see that the whole body has a mesh pattern.

In a form that can not be imagined from the first appearance.

The brown part in the upper part is the digestive organ.

If you look at the ratio of red objects to the body, you can see how big the jellyfish are.


It will spread further.

A figure that can be seen in the sea is a plastic bag. I'm also convinced that turtles accidentally eat plastic trash as jellyfish.

The red object inside the jellyfish seems to be a crustacean. The crustaceans were moving their limbs, but no matter how wide the jellyfish spread, they were held firmly and could not escape to the end.
