Sea Gooseberry

(Pleurobrachia bachei) - The Sea Gooseberry is a type of comb jelly, of which there are more than 100 different species worldwide. They are 99% water, and have no brain, heart, or blood. They move by means of cilia: minute, hair-like tendrils which line the surface of the comb jelly. They have no stinging cells. The two long branched tentacles are armed with colloblasts: specialized adhesive cells which are used to ensnare their prey.
