TOMORROW, my nautical travel journal will be available for pre-order! Today I talk about something that’s been around for a long time… Literally: Immortal Jellyfish.
Turritopsis dohrnii may be the only animal that can revert from a fully-fledged adult, back into it’s polyp stage, dropping to the sea floor, if it is injured or in unfavorable conditions. Theoretically, this cycle can go on forever! However, much like practical views on immortality (I’m lookin’ at you, vampires), these jellies can, and do die, getting eaten or simply falling to disease before they can revert into polyp stage.
I’ve complied all sorts of experiences I encountered during my artist’s residency aboard Schmidt Ocean Institute’s Research Vessel Falkor, into a 36-page travel journal! Get a free PDF sampler of the upcoming travel journal right here:
Make sure you’re on the list, so you can cash in on the early-bird special!
