Found in every ocean around the world, jellyfish are rather unique aquatic animals that can easily be identified by their dome shaped bodies and long, trailing tentacles. Jellyfish use their tentacles for defense, as well as to stun or kill prey. Scientific Name: Phylum Cnidaria Characteristics: Like all Safari figurines, this model has been faithfully designed for life-like accuracy. There are over 1800 species of jellyfish – can you figure out which type this one is? Size and Color: Jellyfish are one of the most diverse groups of animals on planet Earth, and they can be brightly colored, dull, and even translucent. Standing 2.15 inches tall and 2 inches in diameter, both dimensions of this model are roughly the size as a stick of lip balm.

History:

While jellyfish are predominantly known for their stings, most species are quite harmless. However, some jellyfish of the Cubozoa class, such as the Box jellyfish and the Irukandji jellyfish, can be deadly towards humans. Most jellyfish toxin isn’t fatal by itself, but it can cause anaphylaxis and shock which can ultimately lead to drowning if a stung individual is alone in open water.

Jellyfish are found worldwide in the oceans today, and they have existed since before the dinosaurs. Although some Jellyfish are feared for their stings, most are relatively harmless. A few species simply float with the ocean current, while others propel themselves by expelling water. All Jellyfish use their tentacles to trap food, and they have a simple digestive system that allows them to quickly process their meals.
