Gardaland SEA LIFE Aquarium adds “Meduse da vicino” (Jellyfish up close)

Gardaland SEA LIFE Aquarium inaugurates season 2011 with a brand new addition: the brand new multisensorial interactive room JELLYFISH UP CLOSE, dedicated to one of the most fascinating species present in nature. Column shaped tanks host different types of jellyfish hailing from every corner of the world enhanced by colorful lighting. The exhibit shares with visitors little-known facts about these extraordinary marine creatures, often known only for their stinging power and not for their incredible complexity.

Jelly Blubber (Catostylus mosaicus) live in coastal waters, in particular at the mouth of rivers, of the Indian Ocean and of the Western Pacific Ocean, between Pakistan and Australia. They assume different colours depending on the seaweed living inside their bodies.
Guests of Gardaland SEA LIFE Aquarium will be able to admire them in the blue and white varieties.

The Moon Jellyfish (Aurelia aurita) is completely transparent; its gonads positioned on the top of its umbrella reproduce the shape of a four-leaf clover. It lives along the English coasts, in the Mediterranean Sea and in the Oceans while its measures range between 4 and 35 cm.

The Spotted Jelly (Mastigias papua) originates in the South Pacific Ocean. It is characterised by a transparent umbrella inside which seaweed with blue shades live; an unusual covering of curious white bubbles completes the charm of this marvellous specimen. It lives off small plankton and it can reach 60 cm of diameter.

The Japanese Sea Nettle (Chrysaora melanaster). It is equipped with thin and very long tentacles moving sinuously; it comes from the open waters of the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean and it can be up to 60 cm long.

Visitors to Gardaland SEA LIFE Aquarium may discover the most beautiful creatures populating the fresh and sea waters of the planet. With over 37 completely themed tanks, over 5 thousand specimens to be admired up close and an underwater tunnel which gives the feeling of traveling through the ocean, Gardaland SEA LIFE Aquarium is an experience suitable for both adults and children. Exhibits are supported with videos about the marine world, discovering all its secrets but also supporting the safeguarding campaigns in favour of oceans or particular endangered species.  www.gardalandsealife.it
