Animals in the phylum Cnidaria are often classified into four classes: Hydrozoa, Scyphozoa, Cubozoa, and Anthozoa. “Cnidaria” means “stinging nettle,” and animals are classified in this phylum for possessing stinging cells called nematocysts.

I am Ashley, an incredibly introverted environmental enthusiast.
I'm studying to be a marine biologist.
I have a fierce love for all living things, a very broad sense of humor, and I'm likely too passionate for my own good.
Herein you'll find animals (especially creepy-crawlies), nature, science, art, some of my own photography, and occasionally a scattering of personal posts.
I'm an avid reader and music-listener, so suggestions are always welcome (you can check out my last.fm if you're interested).
I source all of my own posts unless it's my content, in which case I tag it "personal."
But that tag is littered with a bunch of other, boring things as well, so peruse with caution.
