Check out Japan's rare aquarium-exclusive jellyfish


The world is still full of surprises

There's something wonderful about getting to discover something new in places where you least expect them. One of these marvelous scenarios is when a couple folks working at an aquarium found a rare jellyfish species that might remain undiscovered in the wild.

While the employees' discovery happened in 1992, it this news became more known when images of the jellyfish were appearing recently on Twitter and other Japanese social media places. The jellyfish is classified as an ereine lactoides and it's Japanese species name is the kobu ereine kuroge.

To this day, people are wondering how this jellyfish appeared in the unnamed aquarium. Hopefully, we'll get to hear more about as people begin to research the species further since more folks are finding out about it. One thing for sure, I find it fascinating that a new creature was found in a local place instead of an area in the wild, which shows that surprises can appear in the most obvious places sometimes.
