Fried Egg Jellyfish!
Cotylorhiza tuberculata (1st pic) and Phacellophora camtschatica (2nd pic)
These jellies primarily feed on zooplankton and reproduce asexually. Larva attach themselves to a hard ocean surface and grow in a polyp colony that looks like a stack of saucers. The tiny babies are then released from capsules, like spaceships and drift away.
C.Tuberculata usually measure up to 20 centimeters wide, though they can reach 50 centimeters across.
P. Camtschatica is a massive jellyfish, with a bell up to 60cm in diameter and sixteen clusters of up to a few dozen tentacles, each measuring up to 6m long.
Their stings are so weak they can’t even kill some crustaceans.
