Hudson River Fact of the week

Moon jellies turn the color of the food they eat.  Pink jellies eat mostly crustaceans, while orange jellies have been dining on brine shrimp.  They can be found in warm and temperate coastal waters; mainly along the estuaries during the summer months.  They are enjoyed by sea turtles, large fish and marine birds.  This brings up the major problem of plastic bags looking a lot like jellies.
