Is this what happens when you take too much human growth hormone?
World's oceans will soon be ruled by IMMORTAL SELF-CLONING JELLYFISH SHOCK
When I see stories like this I so wish I was editor of Fortean Times!
Apparently most jellyfish die after having sex, but this jellyfish, known as Turritopsis Nutricula manages to cleverly revert back to a juvenile state after mating - effectively becoming a baby again and living forever. It must be a man!
Scientists say the 5mm long jellyfish can do this iforever , which explains the huge rise in the population that wash up on our beaches.
Soon, the sea will be a white mass of pure jellyfish, although when jellyfish-infused beauty products start hitting the shelves from 2012 the poor little Turritopsis Nutricula will get hunted to extinction. That will teach them for being so clever!!
