Abstract: Repeating rejuvenation of Turritopsis sp. from medusa to polyp was observed 10 times, which is the most numerous number of such a reversal life cycle. Starting from a single immature medusa collected from Okinawa Island, southern Japan in May 2009 as a founder, every rejuvenated hydroid colony was continuously cultured for about two years, being kept separately in respective tank filled with fresh natural seawater (32 psu) at Shirahama, Wakayama Prefecture, Japan in a running seawater system in the laboratory at 21-29 ℃ without strong natural sunlight which may induce algal growth on rearing vessels, and being fed mainly with Artemia nauplii.
