'Cassiopeia' features a Cassiopeia xamachana (aka upside-down jellyfish) jellyfish rhythmically pulsing on the 407 Building overlooking Lincoln Road.
Cassiopeia jellyfish are commonly found in shallow, muddy waters near mangroves where they can be found by the tens of thousands. They have a symbiotic relationship with algae living in their tissues that provides them with energy from photosynthesis. Therefore they do not need to hunt for food in the open ocean like most other jellyfish species, and can instead 'sunbathe' upside-down in sheltered locations.
