Caption: Pacific sea nettle (Chrysaora fuscescens), photographed at the New Orleans Aquarium. This species has a distinctive golden-brown bell, up to 30 cm in diameter, whitish oral arms, and 24 thin reddish tentacles that may be several meters long. Contact with the tentacles can produce a painful sting. These jellyfish can be found along the Pacific coast from Mexico to British Columbia. They swim continuously, feeding upon crustaceans, salps, comb jellyfish, fish eggs and larvae. Despite their sting, they are eaten by certain marine birds, such as fulmars. They are a popular species for display in public aquariums.
