image for Jellyfish fossils found
Just think, I too could find love

Scientists in Arizona have found rare fossilised remains of a Jellyfish, the first time any such remains have been found in the fossil record.

Dr Heinz Variety said: "This find is unbelievable, and the first of its type anywhere in the world."

The jellyfish was found this by mistake, underneath a shopping mall that was being knocked down. Usually, because Jellyfish have no skeleton they leave nothing behind when they die. According to Dr Variety it was a very lucky find.

Heinz continued: "This fossil is miles away from the sea, so we don't even know how it got to be here, unless Jellyfish grew legs at one point, and learnt to walk. Maybe we as scientists have been wrong all this time, and the Jelly is actually the missing link between Apes and Man."

Dr Heinz Variety has submitted a $3m research proposal grant request to investigate the possible evolutionary link. He says he will carry out a six year study, taking him on a world tour to some of the most beautiful spots on the planet.

"It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it," said Heinz with a wry smile on his face.
