Jellyfish play a critical role in the lives of different marine creatures being used as a direct food source, as shelter (juvenile fish), or even as a means of travelling (like the tiny crab in the lower left image). These symbiotic relationships were being further studied by scientists.Via Natural Selection Source: http://jellybiologist.com/

The jellyfish evolved in the lake without any predators, and over time grew vegetarian and lost their ability to sting. Their red color is a result of an algae diet. The water in the lake is salty and connected underground to the ocean but not even the tiniest jellyfish can get in or out.

A Netherlands-based artist by the name of Marinus is cranking out some of the best nature GIFs we’ve seen. He takes short excerpts from wildlife films and loops them in Photoshop. 

While turning footage of animals into short animations isn’t anything new, can you believe how fluid these are?
