One of the best parts about the summer is spending time at the beach. Whether it’s just a bike ride away or you have to travel by plane to reach the ocean, the long, lazy days of summer spent swimming and tanning and building sand castles make some of the best memories. Of course, no vacation spot comes without its hazards. At the beach you run the risk of getting sunburned, stepping on a crab or, the worst, getting stung by a jellyfish!
Jellyfish are the major non-polyp form of individuals of the phylum Cnidaria. They get around by using their umbrella top, or bell, as propulsion and use their stinging tentacles to capture prey…or just ruin your beach day. Jellyfish can be found in every ocean and sometimes even in fresh water. The most dangerous jellyfish is the Chironex fleckeri, more commonly known as the box jellyfish. It’s sting is excruciatingly painful and usually results in death! Another well known villain is the Portuguese Man O’ War, whose stings often induce fever, shock, and heart or lung problems!
Needless to say, we urge you to stay far away from jellyfish in the ocean. But we decided there was nothing wrong with having a jellyfish on your screen! We created this free jellyfish pointer that you can download from CursorMania and add to your computer screen. CursorMania also has tons of other ocean-themed cursors for you to choose from!
