Fact of the Day: Jellyfish Lake

In the Republic of Palau, there is a body of water known as Jellyfish Lake. At any given time, there are millions of jellyfish inside its waters. Luckily for humans, the species of jellyfish that live there don't have powerful enough stings to cause much harm.

  2. It might be interesting to swim with jellyfish as long as they can't hurt you.

    1. It would be a rather interesting "road trip".
      Palau is in the Marianas - a Microneasian island.

      Haven't you heard of the "Turkey Shoot"???
      I think you need an atlas and a history book.
      It is an overseas possession of the US
      and has representatives in your Congress and Senate!

  11. I'd like to see it but not get in it...:)
    On a family cruise a few yrs ago, we did swim with Sting Rays and it was sooooo scary..I barely got in, touched one, and jumped back on the boat. :)
