A visit to the zoo - Part 3

More pictures from the aquarium: A Long-horn Cowfish
Moon Jellyfish: This common jellyfish is found in coastal waters throughout the world. Strange as it may seem, jellyfish are free-living relatives of sea anemones and corals. They have a very simple body sructure and are very fragile.

Angel Fish
Clown Fish
Unpside-down Jellyfish: Although this has stinging cells and can catch plankton food, it relies mainly on nutrients from algae which live in its tissue. Through photosynthesis these algae convert sunlight into food which they share with their host.
