Jelly Fish Lake


If you've always wanted to swim with thousands of jellyfish, the waters of Mariona Lake in Togean Islands, Sulawesi are filled with thousands and thousands of pink Amaranth jellyfish, each just larger than a human fist.

The lake is separated from the ocean by a ten-metre wide chunk of land, and its body of water is the size of an average football field. The jellyfish got trapped there due to a sudden geological shift, and since they’ve been isolated from predators for generations in a reduced saline environment, their stingers have de-evolved, with their sting now so mild it can no longer be felt by human touch.
