Wordless & Weird Wednesday

A few of the oddities at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, Enjoy!



Upside down jellyfish.



While at the Academy of Sciences I stumbled across this exhibit. I should have taken notes rather than rely on my memory which seems to always elude me these days. However this exhibit was the stomach contents of either a whale, shark or snake. I cannot remember which it was but if any of you know please let me know.

Jelly is nice to see, but not advisable to touch.
I have jellyfish on the seaside. It always hurts people.

the jellyfish looks so interesting. like Icy, I did not know what it was, i thought they were tiny cluster of anchovies in a bowl

That's cool, I just saw a show about killer jellyfish. I think I like the picture with the license plate the most though, just because it's so strange. I would guess it's from a shark. That video of the iguanas was fascinating.

Oh i only saw an ordinary jelly fish here but those on the photos and videos were new to me. I thought the first pic was a grass. Anyway, im scared of jelly fish especially the big one because they can kill people.

BTW, thanks jo for the comment to my yellow, mellow monday post, haha. I love yellow flowers..Thanks in advance.

Have a great day.

Icy, I was there and couldn't figure it out at first :)

rainfield, yes, they can be dangerous.

betchai, I never thought of that but they do look like it.

Ratty, I liked that too and you are probably right that it was a shark.

Katherine, Thanks for stopping by and you have a great weekend.

Jordan, Thanks for reading and commenting.
