A jellyfish is an animal in the cnidarian phylum along withanemones and other creatures with nematocysts (stinging cells).Some are tiny and some can grow very large (i.e. the lion's manejelly). All jellyfish have nematocysts, however some jelliespossess very weak nematocysts meant for tiny prey like… copopods.The stinging cells in these jellies are generally not felt byhumans with the exception of sensitive skin. Cnidarians do notpossess brains, but some have eye spots for sensing light. (MORE)
It is called a jellyfish because it lives in the sea, although itisn't a fish. The "jelly" comes from the texture of its body, whichis wet and slimy, similar to jelly. Their physical characteristics resemble those of jelly. They have awatery texture (although you wouldn't want to go and touch one),a…nd they can appear transparent or translucent. (MORE)
An important echologic role of jellyfishes is the control over the fish population, by eating their larvae.
jellyfish actually came from the Lord in the heavens who made everything all the universe even me and you and if I were you I would accept in your life and Christianity is NOT A RELIGON it is actually a relationship with the alpha and omega begining and end and THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS EVOLUTION yo…u people read your bible and just trust in the Lord and have a real relationship with him.

A jellyfish is an invertebrate and as such, has no spine or bones.A jellyfish also has no brain.
An immature jellyfish is called ephyra . From the egg of a jellyfish, hatches a larva called planula .
a box of jellyfish A group of jellyfish is sometimes called a bloom or a swarm.
They are actually called a smack of jellyfish but you may have heard a wobble of jellyfish and a herd of jellyfish but these are all wrong. The group of Jelly fish is called " smack " and the baby jelly fish groups are called ephyra A group of jellyfish is sometimes called a bloom or a swarm.
A band called Jellyfish recorded a song called the King is Half Undressed on an album called bellybutton in 1990. That's the closest to your question.
No, a hydroxyl group is different than a carbonyl group. A hydroxyl group is an O-H group, while a carbonyl group is a C=O (double bond) group. Perhaps you are thinking of a carboxyl group, which is a sort of hybrid of the 2 groups. Carboxyl groups are C-O-O-H, essentially a merge of the hydroxyl an…d carbonyl groups. (MORE)
The word Harem is Hebrew for forbidden, so the word is not specifying man or woman. It was however used to describe the quarters of women as being Harem or forbidden. The men who had women as slaves, servants, and wives owned them as property so they were also considered Harem property. If you a…re talking about the collective noun for men and women the word for a group of women is a "gaggle" of women. For men it is a "band" of men. (MORE)
Most Jellyfish do. But as for other species that scientist are not aware of, they do not know.
The jellyfish is in the "Cnidaria" group. A "Cnidaria" lives in the water and have soft, hollow bodies.
jellyfish live in the ocean. they are meat eaters. they are made od 96% water 3% protein and 1% minerals
Kingdom - Animalia. Phylum - Cnidaria. Subphylum - Medusozoa. Class - Scyphozoa. Order - Anthomedusae. Suborder - Filifera. These are only rough and I don't know the Family, Genus or Species yet but this is enough. No? (May not be 100% Correct!)
The best place to buy a jellyfish is Jellyfishart.com. They ship tanks and jellyfish anywhere in the US.
because they live in the water. just joking but i think that may be why.
A floating jar of jelly with tentacles. Its like a blob with tentacles. DON'T touch it and stay at a safe distance because it stings.
Mostly in water such as ocean, seas, but some can live in rivers and lakes. But not all around the word... just some parts.
just a jellyfish is probably called a jellyfish because it's has the word jelly (because of his skin and or texture is like jelly) and fish is in there just (because the jellyfish live in the ocean with the fishes). but no, jellyfishes aren't real fishes..
They are called "clicks ." Sometime s spelled funny like "qulick," "kliqe," or " clique." A group of girls is called a bevy. (check with "the students companion" by Wilfred D. Best)
They are called chalcogens because they are ore forming elements as a large number of metal ores exist as oxides or sulphides....
Every jellyfish tentacle is covered with cells called cnidoblasts.These cnidoblasts cover the nematocysts that contain the stingingthreads.
Jellyfish don't hunt they just wait for fod to run into it, but sometimes you'll find them in big groups. hope this helps :)
they kiss for too long and find a baby in the cabbage patch the next day
Starfish are also misnamed. The word "fish" was generally applied to many marine animals before taxonomic study determined that they were more closely related to other classes of animals.
people say that the reason why it is called the moon jellyfish because of its shape and the moon jellyfish is also known as a saucer jellyfish becaus it looks like a saucer and its arms are reallyshort that you proably coudnt see them and thy just look flat and round at the top and that is why they …call it the moon and the saucer jellyfish.

The small, white, jellyfish-looking forms are seeds from the Great Tree. The Na'vi call them atokirina' and consider them to be pure spirits.
Same reason we have any other animal. They're just here, sometimes helping the environment like bees helping pollination and such.
Smack, smuck or smuth all mean group of jellyfish. I presume the Question refers to 'Mail On Sunday' Trivial Pursuit quiz, where the answer is SMACK. swarm
The stinging capsule of a jellyfish, or anything in Phylum Cnidaria, is called a Nematocyst. On the outside of the cell is a trigger hair, which, when brushed, will release a very sharp barb, which breaks of in the intruder's skin, adding greatly to the cause of the burning sensation of the relative…ly small amounts of poison. Phylum Cnidaria also includes Hydras, sea anenomes and Portugese Man-of-War. (MORE)
Why aren't octopuses and squids in the same group as jellyfish even though they both have tentacles?
The answer is very simple. Jellyfish are cnidarians. Octopi are not. Because the octopus does not have the same head structure as the jellyfish. Also octopi are cephalopods. They are closer to mollusks in the bases of things but the tentacles are different. Just because they have tentacles does not …mean they are in the same categories. But octopi and squid are in the same category as mollusks such as snails. That is a different story though. But that is why they are not the same. (MORE)
Its sting is among the top most powerful in the jellyfish family. One sea wasp contain enough venom to kill up to 60 adult humans. Being stung invariably results in excruciating pain, and if the sting area is significant, an untreated victim may die in as little as 3 minutes. Far to little time… to actually react to the danger and perform any type of first aid regarding it. There has however been developed an antidote to the toxins from this cutiepie. On the lighter side, this nasty piece of jello fall pray to the sea turtle. I suppose the shell and thick skin is good for something. Its venom attacks the nervous system, heart, and skin at the same time. While an appreciable amount of venom (contact from about ten feet or three metres of tentacle) needs to be delivered in order to have a fatal effect on an adult human. The potently neurotoxic venom is extremely quick to act. Fatalities have been observed as little as four minutes after envenomation, notably quicker than any snake, insect or spider, and prompting its description as the world's deadliest venomous animal. Frequently a person swimming who gets stung will undergo cardiac arrest or drown before they can even get back to the shore or boat. More information on Wikipedia, see related link below. Now I am not going swimming in the sea around Australia unless there are turtles around :-) (MORE)
if there wasnt jellyfish there would be to many plankton and not enough sea turtles and other things that ate jellyfish the food chain would be WAY out of wack
When a jellyfish (or other creature) grows back a missing limb or other body part, the process is called regeneration .
The Box Jellyfish lives/swims alone. If you get more than one together (unless they are mating) they will not get along.
The common names of many animals preceded their classification intomodern taxonomy. Jellyfish-like organisms may still be calledjellyfish (Portuguese man-o'-war, a hydrozoan). Some jellyfish havenames that differentiate them from other jellyfish (sea nettles).
Because Plankton and jellyfish aren't much different, they have nuclei and are both wntt to who treat the yellow colliouers not western European speciea.
Be specific, what kind of jellyfish? For a Box Jellyfish, it is some sort of neurotoxin.
Nematocytes. The actual stinger is a sub-cellular organelle of the nematocyte cell, called a nematocyst. A nematocyst is a non-living secretion of the cell (like a human hair, or a bird's feather). It consists of a sac filled with venom and a long inverted tube. When triggered by the right combinati…on of tactile, chemical, and neuronal stimuli, a hinged door opens to let the tube shoot out of the sac. It acts similar to blowing into a partially inverted latex rubber glove, where the fingers of the glove evert (the opposite of invert) as you blow into the glove opening. Except that the nematocyst tube is relatively much longer than the fingers of a rubber glove. The tube which only measures a micron or two in diameter can extend to almost a millimeter, long enough to penetrate (and deliver venom to) its prey, or occasionally innocent bystanders like us, yikes!!! The moral of this story is that if you swim with dangerous jellies, try not to bump into one before they are full, and above all, try not to smell like food. Darn, I just remembered the question was about moon jellyfish. Never mind, they only have a mild venom to us, and their stingers can't penetrate our skin, except for maybe our lips and eyelids.

They aren't actually fish; they're plankton. Jellyfish have no bones, brain, or heart. To see light, detect smells and orient themselves, they have rudimentary sensory nerves at the base of their tentacles. from discovery kids.com
Because of their colours, size and apperance. They are the same colours as a lion's mane, they are big like a lion's mane and they look all scruffy and furry like a lion's mane.
Giant pandas are mostly shy, solitary animals and are rarely foundin a group, however, a group of pandas is called an "Embarassmentof Pandas" or a "Cupboard".
A jellyfish that has no tentacles is probably a Nuda comb jelly of the genera Beroe or Neis . Unlike other comb jellies, species of Beroe and Neis swim around until they bump into suitable prey, which they then swallow. Swallowed prey is then torn to pieces by muscular contractions and specia…lized, spine-like cilia lining the stomach chamber. (MORE)

You might call a poisonous jellyfish a "jellyfish" because all of these animals are either venomous or poisonous or both. This is because a jellyfish needs venom in order to kill its prey so that it can eat.
Animals that are invertebrates don't have spines. They include organisms like Arthropods and coelenterates. They are completely different from animals that are classed as vertebrates, which includes mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians.
The English popular name jellyfish has been in use since1796. It was called a fish because it was found in the ocean.
Both. Most medusa jellyfish are planktonic (free drifters) that arelargely at the whim of currents and tides of the marineenvironment. These somewhat arbitrary forces often result inindividuals becoming scattered and therefore solitary. However, several factors also allow gatherings of many individu…als,as well. The life cycle of most jellyfish starts with sexualreproduction in a gathering of mature adult medusae in the fall,with asexual reproduction in the spring, resulting in a 'bloom' ofjellyfish starting their medusa stage of life in relatively closeproximity. Second, especially those jellies whose habitats areclose to shore, tidal action can actually tend to gather jellyfishinto 'swarms' within those protected bays and inlets. Third, mostjellies do have an ability to direct their very limited propulsivemovements towards or away from things that they can sense, such aslight, salinity, and temperature. This can result in huge swarms ofjellies that occasionally can even clog power plant cooling waterintakes. Btw, scientists tend to avoid the lay term 'smack' for a group ofjellies. Although the gathering ability of the shallow-water moonjellyfish (genus Aurelia) has been studied and somewhat understood,we still have much to learn about most jellyfish gatherings,especially the method jellyfish use to gather into a swarm forsexual reproduction. It is obviously essential that the freedrifting released gametes have the best chance of 'bumping into'the gametes from other individual jellyfish of the opposite sex. (MORE)
Well if they were all collected together you could have a "bag" ofpearls. However, when worn as a necklace this is called a "string"of pearls.
