Crown Jellyfish • Crown Jellyfish

The crown jellyfish is bioluminescent in nature with an umbrella-like crown. The color ranges from bluish purple to mauve. Eight arm-like tentacles extend from the bell which is used to sting their prey. They are distinguished from other jellyfish by the presence of a deep groove running around the umbrella, giving them the crown shape from which they take their name. Many of the species in the order inhabit deep sea environments.
