fourteen fascinating facts about jellyfish jellyfish and jelly like sea creatures come in an immensely diverse range of forms animals that are typically called jellyfish belong to the phylum Cnidaria which includes over 10,000 species however some jelly like animals like the comb jelly belong to the phylum Kino Farah this taxonomic difficulty has lead marine biologists to ask if there's even such a thing as a jellyfish let's set those questions aside for now and dive together into the fascinating world of creatures commonly known as jellyfish 1 some jellyfish can glow in the dark many jellyfish have bioluminescent organs which emit light this light may help them in a number of different ways like attracting prey or distracting predators - jellyfish can clone themselves if a jellyfish is cut into the pieces of the jellyfish can regenerate and create two new organisms similarly if a jellyfish is injured it may clone itself and potentially produce hundreds of offspring 3 some jellyfish are immortal there are two phases - debris life the stationary polyps stage and the mobile Medusa phase it's the Medusa phase that we are usually

referring to when we talk about jellyfish typically jellies starred as polyps and develop into Medusa's but the turritopsis nutricula has earned at the nickname the immortal jellyfish for having the ability to travel backward to the polyp stage in times of stress or jellyfish can teach us about efficient underwater propulsion the movements of bell-shaped jellyfish have provided researchers with a new understanding of propulsion the flexibility of their umbrella-like bodies allow them to pulse upwards and downwards without expending much energy researchers have created biomimetic robots with flexible bells which may one day lead to better understand tackles the siphons is a deep stereo doesn't need tentacles to traffic spray six there's a giant jellyfish called the pink meaning the scientific name for this jelly is dry moan Mela or Soni but it's segrete of sting and distinctive color have earned it the nickname pink meanie 7 jellyfish don't have brains instead jellyfish have nerve nets which sense changes in the environment and coordinate the animals responses eight jellyfish movements inspired a new way

will eat peanut butter peanut butter jelly fish need i say more okay I will to aquarist s-- in dallas texas created a saltwater peanut butter mix and fed it to moon jellies apparently the jellies found this mix to be an acceptable source of protein we would love to claim we conducted this trial with noble purpose but the truth is that we just wanted to make peanut butter and jelly fish simply to see if it could be done the researchers write 13 some jellyfish look like trash bags they're known as deep stereo and it matica and are usually found in the Arctic seas 14 jellyfish might take over the ocean you may have heard that jellyfish are taking over the world's oceans however there's actually a good deal of debate about this issue among scientists thanks you for watching like and subscribe [Music]
