OH JESUS CHRIST NO

The Turritopsis Nutricula is able to revert back to a juvenile form once it mates after becoming sexually mature. Marine biologists say the jellyfish numbers are rocketing because they need not die. Dr Maria Miglietta of the Smithsonian Tropical Marine Institute said: "We are looking at a worldwide silent invasion."

Turritopsis Nutricula is technically known as a hydrozoan and is the only known animal that is capable of reverting completely to its younger self.

  1. “The jellyfish are originally from the Caribbean but have spready all over the world.”

    Apparently the reporter is practicing his/her pidgin for the inevitable immortal Caribbean jellyfish conquerin’.

  2. Meh, if we’re going to get rubbed out it may as well by through drowning in tiny jellyfish. Personally I’d rather it were squid cause they’re bigger, cooler and have awesome beaks for ripping us apart with but I can live with jellyfish.

  3. “Turritopsis Nutricula is technically known as a hydrozoan and is the only known animal that is capable of reverting completely to its younger self.”.

    Hmmm… I think that fact would make fora a cool Animal Man story.
