Title: Beached Blue Button

Member:

Description: While looking for shells on the beach in Avon, we came across this beached creature. It's a Blue Button "jellyfish" not common in this region. (Actually it's not a jellyfish, but it is in the jellyfish family)...

Steve O, The Blue Button is not poisonious.. although they may have a slight sting and burn like a jellyfish...
the center of the blue button is approx. 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter and the tenticles can be 1 to 2 inches in length. The blue button's are more common in warmer tropical waters... They travel with the currents and are at the mercy of the tides and weather....
