The Jelly Gallery at the Aquarium is home to eight specially-designed jellyfish exhibits called Kriesels. A Kreisel is a cornerless exhibit with circular water flow. Named after the German word for carousel, it’s designed to keep the jellies in the center of the exhibit and away from the walls. In the wild, jellyfish spend most of their time in open water and their soft bodies are easily injured by bumping into corners and solid objects.
A quick tip for all you beach-goers: Audubon Aquarists have found vinegar to be the best way to stop the pain from a jellyfish sting. If you want to appreciate jellyfish from a safe distance, visit our Jelly Gallery!
