Jellyfish are just the most stunning creatures . . .
Here are some fun friday facts!
- Jellyfish have been around for more than 650 million years . . . meaning they outdate both dinosaurs and sharks!
- The Box Jellyfish kills more people than any other marine creature each year. (A box jellyfish also has 64 anuses!)
- The worlds largest known jellyfish can reach a diameter of 2.5 m / 8ft and its tentacles can grow to be half the length of a football field.
- Jellyfish have no brain, no blood, and no nervous system. Their senses are primitive and consist of a neural net, eye spots that can sense light from dark, and chemosensory pits that help them identify potential prey.
- Jellyfish NEVER stop growing.
