why do jellyfish only sting when theres physical contact

why doesnt the electricity just surge throughout the entire ocean

why dont jellyfish rule the world

Fun fact!  Jellyfish don’t use electricity to sting you.  Whenever they feel pressure against their tentacles, it causes its cells to rapidly send out these stingers into your skin that then release its venom.  Like this:

They are called nematocysts. They are what make box jellies and other fun lil critters so dangerous, because without these wee little daggers, the venom would have no way to get into your skin.

And yet something as thin as nylon stockings or pantyhose is enough to protect you, they are so small.

So if you’re scared of jellyfish? Wear sexy sheer undergarments into the sea like the regal creature you are.

I’m going to reblog this again because that is some of the best advice I have ever gotten on this blog.

Have some various squiggly sea creatures. If I had more patience and done better in math, I might’ve gone into deep sea marine biology. But, here I am instead.

Second WIP – hopefully I’ll finish this tomorrow… But I guess it will take more hours than I think. *le sigh*

Once This is done I switch back to commissions, I swear… But sometimes you just have to get things out of your system.
