 Lake thronged with 10million jellyfish... but don't worry, they've lost their sting
Lake thronged with 10million jellyfish... but don't worry, they've lost their sting
Hundreds of years ago the lake had an outlet to the ocean but when the sea level dropped the jellyfish population were isolated in the algae-rich lake and began to thrive. With no risk of being eaten, the jellies multiplied in the lake on the Pacific island of Palau. Over time their stings weakened and visitors can now swim alongside them with no fear of being stung. picked by AutumnLotus 3 years ago
