Out of the Blue...

Out of the Blue is the first time Moon Jellyfish have been displayed in North Wales.

Named for their ghostly, translucent bells, moon jellies (Aurelia aurita) are abundant in temperate and tropical waters worldwide. Their delicate bodies pulse and drift with the effortless grace of a ballerina. The moon jelly•s short tentacles are armed with stinging cells, called nematocysts, but the sting lacks the toxic, painful punch of other jellies.

Our amazing moon jellies can be seen in different coloured lighting from yellow, green and many more colours. The special led light that has been installed on the display really shows how translucent theses beautiful newcomers are. This interactive display allows visitors to create their own light shows by pressing their favourite colours on the remote control.
