In Palau, Taking the Bait to Swim With Jellyfish

The experience was nothing short of surreal. Slipping into the fluorescent green, bath-warm water, I was quickly engulfed by an overwhelming number of ominous pulsating orange blobs, which ranged in size from bowling balls to Ping-Pong balls. My first sensation was pure dread. Instinctively I expected the golden jellyfish to sting me, even though I had been repeatedly reassured they would not. Still, I couldn’t suppress the doubts: What if some of them have evolved to have stingers? Do they get angry? Is one going to blob its way up my nose or into my ear?
