Coming to a Cottage Near You: Jellyfish

Would you ever expect to see a jellyfish gently pulsating its way through your cottage lake? Probably not, but apparently it's becoming more likely. Lucky for us, freshwater jellyfish do differ slightly from marine jellyfish. In case you spot something with a whorl of string-like tentacles floating around in your lake, it's important to know these jellyfish are not harmful to humans.
