This is interesting

This is interesting. This and your previous dead frog dissection make me less inclined to believe all the star jelly observations with no embryos are in fact amphibian eggs. I think some certainly are, but the jelly often looks a completely different consistency.

Hi Masked Marvel,Could you

Hi Masked Marvel,

Could you elaborate a little? There are certainly plenty of examples of ova-less star jelly that have undoubtedly come from frogs as the ova and frog remains are adjacent to the jelly. The jelly and ova are sometimes partially integrated and sometimes seperate.
