Relax is the jellyfish also to catch prey. As she could tarnish not water, it extends their shining tentacles circular. But while her booty motto is: wait with poison spray.

Until July 10 on the road is the NOAA research vessel Okeanos Explorer to the island group of the Mariana Islands in the Western Pacific and D2 which do shooting.
