Rare to find in this part of the world, spotted this lone Purple-striped jellyfish at the baga beach in Goa early in the morning today. I read a news report that a small colony of these jelly fishes was also sighted in a strech of beach in south goa a couple of days ago.
Interestingly, the vividlyhued invertebrates have not been sighted on Goan beaches in recent memory. Their occurrence is usually reported in some countries in the Pacific Ocean and their bite is said to be toxic. A multiple bite could be serious.

Partner for life.
Great hornbills, considered as near threatened, are generally monogamous, many mate for life. While mating the male and female court each other for a while and once the time for laying eggs comes, both search for a nest hole deep in the jungle, together. The female enters the hole and seals the opening, leaving a small slit for its beak to receive food from the male. She remains inside for 60-80 days when the male goes in search for food and regurgitates out from his gullet to the female.
