Jellyfish

Jellyfish are ancient creatures which have lived in our oceans since before the dinosaurs roamed the earth.

Profile - Jellyfish

Jellyfish

Jellyfish have drifted along on ocean currents for millions of years, even before dinosaurs lived on the Earth. They are abundant in cold and warm ocean water, in deep water, and along coastlines. Jellyfish have tiny stinging cells in their tentacles to stun or paralyze their prey before they eat them.

Amazingly, Sea Jellies are primitive animals with no brain and have just one opening where food goes in …and comes out.
