.. vampires aren't the only immortal ones ..

Meet the Turritopsis Nutricula, a species of jellyfish that is able to revert to it's first stage of life (i.e., the polyp stage) through a process called transdifferentiation. Pretty awesome!! They're really very pretty. I wonder about the evolutionary purpose/development of this particular species of jellyfish.
