Caption: Scyphozoan jellyfish (Thysanostoma thysanura) in the sea. Scyphozoa are referred to as the true jellyfish. They spend most of their lives in the free-swimming medusa form (shown) and feed on a variety of crustaceans and fish, which they capture using stinging cells called nematocysts. The nematocysts are attached to the tentacles that radiate downward from the edge of the umbrella-shaped bell. Photographed off the coast of Reunion island, Indian Ocean.
