Mangrove Upsidedown Jellyfish GALLERYCassiopea xamachana
Found in in Mangrove sea grass and muddy areas. Long oral tentacles with leaf shaped attachments. They remind me of cauliflowers. Instead of spending their lives swimming about they lay upside down letting the sun help speed the growth of zoozanthellae (symbiotic single cell algae) upon which they obtain some of their nourishment. They are mildly toxic. See Video of the Mangrove upside-down Jellyfish on my YouTube Channel.
