Recently, He Wencheng, a resident of Jiefang Street, Wanshan Town, Wanshan District, Tongren City, Guizhou Province, found strange creatures in his backyard pond.
The relevant staff of the Fishery Technology Extension Station of the Agriculture and Rural Bureau of Tongren City confirmed on-site observation that the creature was a peach jellyfish.
Professor Yao Junjie from the Department of Aquatic Sciences of the School of Animal Science of Guizhou University also led a team to the residents’ home to learn about the situation. It was confirmed that it was indeed a peach jellyfish. Professor Yao Junjie and his party also carried out sampling and testing of the water.
According to reports, peach blossom jellyfish is an endangered ancient coelenterate in the world. Its preciousness is comparable to that of giant pandas. It is called "living fossil" in water and has extremely high research value and ornamental value.
Peach blossom jellyfish has extremely high requirements for the water environment, so the protection of peach blossom jellyfish must start with protecting the water source.
