The fried egg jellyfish—so named for its resemblance to the breakfast dish—occasionally attracts hitchhikers. Young crabs may catch a ride on the gelatinous invertebrate's bell, some of which are 2 feet in diameter. The carnivorous jelly's nematocyst-covered tentacles can grow to be 20 feet long. Jellyfish owe their translucency to their makeup: They're 95 percent water.
