Transformation Tuesday!
Remember these little Moon jelly bloopers we showed you a couple of months ago? Well here they are now as fully grown medusas... good growing guys!

The moon jellyfish starts out as a sedentary polyp. As the polyp grows, it will eventually form into a budding polyp, which will then produce many ephyra (seen in 1st video). This juvenile form will continue to develop until it reaches the adult medusa (2nd video).
