The Life of a Jellyfish

Animal Description

Diagram Of A Jellyfish

The habitat of a jellyfish is water. Most live in salt water, but there are a few types that live in fresh water. Jellyfish float in the sea. The threats of the jellyfish include over population because it results in limited food sources. Another threat is drastic changes in climate which can alter their food supply as well. Speaking of food, jellyfish will eat anything in their tentacles, even peanut butter! They will eat plankton, fish eggs, larva and even other jellyfish. Whales, fish like sun fish and sea turtles are known for eatting jellyfish, so they must beware of these predators! Jellyfish move by expanding and contracting, causing it to push slowly through the water. Aside from this continual movement as well as eatting, jellyfish do not appear to have any specific habits.
