Jellies

95% water, 100% amazing: Jellies

Jellies have staying power. They’ve survived—and thrived—in the Earth’s oceans for more than 500 million years. And a dazzling array of diverse species will extend their stay at Shedd’s special exhibit, Jellies.

Immerse yourself in the mesmerizing world of jellies, where simple bell-shaped forms are the result of complex biological processes, and delicate frills harbor tiny venomous harpoons that paralyze prey. Even though they don’t have blood, bones, or brains, jellies aren’t as simple as they look!
