Moon Jellyfish

Moon Jelly

These fascinating animals have translucent bodies and can be recognised by their four horseshoe-shaped organs, easily seen through the top of their bodies (or the 'bell').

The Moon jelly is capable of only limited motion, and drifts with the current, even when swimming.

They grow 25-40cm in diameter and for feeding, they have a mucous coating on their bell which traps plankton, then they use their tentacles to "sweep" the food from the bell into the mouth.

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

Did you know?

Sea jellies are made up of more than 90 per cent water.
