— This is a natural withdrawal from life. Medusa gave offspring, came close to the shore, and the waves carried them to the beach. This is usually a long-eared jellyfish in our area is in early October. Those jellyfish, which we were caught for the aquarium museum, unfortunately also died. They were traumatized at capture and transportation to Kaliningrad.

As already reported, "Komsomolskaya Pravda", at the end of last August in the sea off the Zelenogradsk and virtually the entire coast of the Baltic Sea has appeared countless beautiful eared jellyfish. This phenomenon has delivered many pleasant minutes rest. Part goad animals, also known as the organisms, scientists have caught for the aquarium Museum of the World Ocean.
