An alternative universe ending to 923..
My last GIF was too big for Tumblr.. :-/
Jellyfish Lake in Palau. Apparently the jellies have lost their ability to sting because of lack of predators in the lake and you can swim with them!
WAIT BUT THAT’S NOT EVEN THE COOLEST PART: These jellyfish carry small populations of algae inside their bodies and derive much of their nutrition from the sugars that the algae produce. The jellyfish follow the sun across the lake each day and rotate continuously, so that the algae are always getting maximum sunlight exposure for photosynthesis. Then at night they dive to deeper parts of the lake so the algae can absorb nitrogen. It’s one of the best examples of endosymbiosis in action and it’s KICKASS.
i want to go to there

You know how you hear stories of dogs keeping their owners alive for weeks after having a stroke or running for miles to get help if their owners are hurt in the wild, I accidentally knocked my wheelchair away while sitting on the couch and had to slide across the floor on a cushion before climbing back in, Rico not only didn’t help but howled at me while i was doing it because i wasn’t paying attention to him.
