We love animals. In fact, we love them so much that we geek out over learning little-known animal facts, and we suspect we're not the only ones. Every Tuesday, we'll share a few fun animal facts with you from experts at zoos, parks and aquariums all over the country (and maybe even beyond).
Today's expert: Mark Schick, Special Exhibit Collection Manager at Shedd Aquarium. Schick has been working with Shedd for over 15 years and has been working on and off with jellies for about 10 years. He's a self-professed geek about them and recently shared 10 fun facts about these super simple organisms.
For more information on these sea creatures, check out the Shedd Aquarium's Jellies exhibit and other Shedd articles.
Be sure to check in next week for more fun animal facts on Trivia Tuesdays.
