I have bad taste in everything, and am becoming increasingly aware of it.
Fauna Fact of the Day
Meet Turritopsis nutricula, the Benjamin Button of the sea or, as you probably know him, the immortal jellyfish. About as wide as a human pinky nail when fully grown, Turritopsis has quite the unique ability- although it typically reproduces and dies the old-fashioned way, when starvation, physical damage, or other crises arise, this little jellyfish has the ability to transform all of its cells back into a younger state. Turritopsis turns itself into a blob-like cyst, which then develops into a polyp colony, the first stage in jellyfish life. Through asexual reproduction, the resulting polyp colony can spawn hundreds of genetically identical jellyfish- perfect copies of the original adult.
