#OceanRunnerNH: Little blobs on the beach (comb jellies)

Posted on June 20, 2016

Ocean Runner Nichole spots little gelatinous blobs when running on the beach. Suspecting that they are a type of jellyfish, she goes to Seacoast Science Center Naturalist Anna for answers. She learns that they are not jellyfish at all, but comb jellies, a species belonging to the Ctenophora phylum, that live in marine waters worldwide. Their most distinctive feature is the ‘combs’ – groups of cilia which they use for swimming.
