Jelly-like animals are common in cold and warm ocean water

Jellyfish have been drifting around on ocean currents for millions of years, long before dinosaurs existed

The jelly-like animals are common in cold and warm ocean water, deep sea, and around coastlines, and they pulse along on ocean currents. Jellyfish, despite their name, are not fish; they are invertebrates or animals without backbones. Instead, jellyfish contain microscopic stinging cells in their tentacles that they use to shock or immobilize their prey before eating them. Their mouth is an aperture inside their bell-shaped body. They consume and dispose of trash from this aperture. Jellyfish are driven forward when they shoot water from their mouths. Tentacles dangle from the smooth baglike body, stinging its prey.

Jellyfish stings may be painful and sometimes fatal to humans. Jellyfish, on the other hand, do not assault humans on purpose. The majority of stings occur when humans inadvertently contact a jellyfish, but it can be fatal if the string comes from a harmful species. Jellyfish metabolize their food quite quickly. They couldn’t float if they had to carry a vast, undigested meal around with them. They eat fish, shrimp, crabs, and small plants. Medusa is a popular food for sea turtles. Some jellyfish are transparent, while others are brightly colored, such as pink, yellow, blue, and purple, and are frequently luminous. Jellyfish tentacles have the power to sting. While the severity of stings varies, most jellyfish stings cause minor discomfort in humans. When a jellyfish is in the water, it is intriguing, elegant, and mysterious to behold. When it is taken out of the water, it becomes a far less fascinating glob. This is outstanding to the fact that jellyfish are made of about 95% water.
