The translucent moon jelly can be identified by the four half-circles on its bell. These are the reproductive tissues. The toxins in this jelly’s stinging cells are not strong enough to penetrate human skin, making them safe to touch. In the wild, they live in temperate areas of the Indian, Atlantic, and Pacific Oceans.
