About Jellyfish

The jellyfish is one of the oldest living creatures in the world.
Jelly Fish are semi-transparent, graceful creatures. They are only five percent solid matter and form, and the remaining 95 percent is all water!

Jellyfish are found in every ocean, from the surface to the deep sea.
Jellyfish belong to the phylum Cnidaria, whose members possess stinging cells that can inject a paralyzing poison into prey.

Jellyfish come in a wide variety of sizes and shapes, from the 1" thimble size Caribbean sea jellyfish to the Arctic Lion's Mane's jellyfish with tentacles as long as 100 feet, and weighing up to a ton.
