We're releasing yet more jellyfish mini-episodes for our uncommonly charming gang of supporters on Patreon. Join them to get this episode, as well as the entire back-catalogue. This week, we're introducing Polyorchis penicillatus (a.k.a. the bell jelly). This gorgeous jelly was once common, but now its medusae are as elusive as the mystery of its polyp stage.
This mini-episode was originally published exclusively for our Patreon supporters. You can listen to an unlocked compilation of this and all of our other jellyfish mini-episodes here.
