The black sea nettle(Chrysaora achlyos), sometimes informally known as the Black jellyfish or Sarlacc Jellyfish, is a species of jellyfish that can be found in the waters of the Pacific Ocean. The black sea nettle is considered a giant jelly; its distinctive purplish bell can reach over three feet (91 cm) in diameter; its lacy, pinkish oral arms can reach nearly 20 feet (6 m) in length and its stinging tentacles 25 feet (7.6 m) or more.


Reading for three female corpses, Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, 1998.


The purpose of embalming is to preserve a dead body from natural decomposition and restore a natural appearance. Embalming is required whenever a body will be viewed publicly, when a body must be held without refrigeration, or when a body will be shipped on an airline. Immediately upon death, various enzymes and bacteria begin to break down a corpse. Many of these bacteria produce toxins that break down tissue and gasses that cause extreme swelling. Refrigeration slows down this process as does embalming, so the sooner the embalming is done, the better. Embalming chemicals work to kill these bacteria and arrest the enzymes. Even if perfectly embalmed, every body will sooner or later decompose. How soon depends on the quality of embalming, burial container and burial location
