Animal Spotlight: South American Sea Nettle
The average South American Sea Nettle (Chrysaora
plocamia) grows to be 20-24 inches (50-60 cm) and has 24 tentacles.
These tentacles may grow as long as 6-9 feet (2-3 m) in length. Most
are colorless and translucent, with faint orange radial stripes. The
sting of the South American Sea Nettle is reportedly irritating but
not severe, lasting 30-60 minutes.

Tonight a group of "regular" folks will be
transformed into Citizen Scientists when they join our Education
& Conservation Team for Amphibian Monitoring Training. Through
interactive activities, Citizen Scientists of all ages will learn to
identify local amphibians by sight and sound.
And, you'll even have the chance to test your new skills
in the field. By following simple data collection methods taught by
Mystic Aquarium pros, volunteers contribute to the understanding of
local frog and toad species to help with species conservation.
If you've missed it, don't fret! Additional training's will be
offered. Keep an eye out for upcoming events here.
