Madagascar Jellyfish

From National Geographic

Looking like a multihued jellyfish, the Betsiboka River in northwestern Madagascar flows into Bombetoka Bay, which then empties into the Mozambique Channel.

In this recently released satellite picture, sandbars and islands between the “tentacles” appear rust-colored due to sediments that washed into the streams and rivers during heavy rains.
