    I saw a ctenophore with a group of moon jellies while snorkeling in Florida, and I’ve been in awe of their beauty and intricate moving parts ever since. I’ve always wondered how such a small organism with seemingly nothing to push itself through the water was able to keep up with the moon jellies. Great video! Thanks for sharing!
