Aurelia aurita

Moon jellyfish, Aurelia aurita, is also called Common jellyfish as it is the most widespread jellyfish in the World Ocean. They are found in almost all seas, their aggregations reach hundreds of millions and can be seen from satellites, and they play a crucial role in ocean life by regulating plankton populations. These jellyfish, like many others, are not born from other jellyfish, but are budded from tiny polyps on the bottom. This is a juvenile jellyfish with a fully transparent body, in which all radial canals are visible - a digestive system supplying nutrients to the dome muscles and sensitive rhopalia with gravity control centers and primitive eyes.
