. Within the Ongeim'l Tketau lake in Palau, Mastigias jellyfish medusae undergo a complex series of daily migrations. The lake is surrounded by tall trees, which cast a shadow at the eastern end of the lake in the morning and at the western end in the afternoon. The jellyfish move 350 m west to east, then back again between sunrise and sunset, and obtain most of their energy from symbiotic zooxanthellae algae contained within them. The main predator of the jellyfish is the anemone Entacmaea medusivora, which occupies only the shaded edge of the lake. Using the information provided, what is the most reliable interpretation of the jellyfish's behaviour?

This migration is accomplished in a series of 2–3 generations. If each butterfly can travel 40 km per day and has a lifespan of 6 weeks, how far can it migrate before it dies?
