Today on Tillicum Beach

A jellyfish massacre!  I wonder what eats jellyfish? There were lots and lots of jellyfish on the beach this morning – some whole, but lots of just parts too.  The birds were not eating them so I wonder if seals or something else would slash through them?  Maybe a boat propeller? This is a nice profile of a sea nettle. The long things to the left of the round top are actually arms. Read about different kinds of jellies on this website from the Newport, Oregon Aquarium: http://www.aquarium.org/jellies/index.htm
