Moving on today to another aquarium in another city, these jellyfish live at the Charleston Aquarium.  Beware these little buggers while you’re visiting the beach this summer, their sting can knock you for a loop.  In doing a couple of searches for more info about them, I think I may have developed a fear of the ocean.   They can be dangerous…deadly even.  The difficult thing is that in most cases you don’t even know they’re there until you’ve already been stung.  I’ve never ran into one myself, but we think our son Kellen brushed against one and was stung last summer.  He became quite sick for a short time and it gave us a real scare!   afs
