We live on land every day. Explore a different world and “dive” into Shedd Aquarium’s magical, colorful and mysterious world of sea jellies!

With over ten different species of these translucent creatures throughout the exhibit, guests will learn fascinating facts like how a single jelly can devour enough food to double its weight each day; how their bodies are 95% water and their feeding arms can grow up to eight feet long; how drifting with a current, they travel thousands of miles; and how the tiniest jelly could cozy up into a contact lens, while the largest couldn’t even fit in an entire minivan.

With the incorporation of videos in its lifestyle display and illuminations of their simple yet captivating bodies, the Jellies exhibit is a treat for the eyes. They may have been exploring the depths of the world’s oceans for millions of years, but will only be visible for a limited time in Shedd Aquarium.
