Crystal jellies are very transparent about their life in the open ocean. The frilly mouth of the jelly—it's the little clapper below the bell—can extend to nearly the size of the jelly itself to swallow food. In this video, you can see the mouth in action, moving along the bell edges to slurp food from the tentacles. Radial canals—the "spokes on a wheel"— then move nutrients about the jelly. It's crystal clear these jellies are awesome!
