Does jellyfish size matter?
no it dont just dont touch it
Jellyfish are predators. Their stinging tentacles are not only to protect themselves but also to sting their prey. Depending on the size of the jellyfish, their prey can be microscopic or small-to-medium-sized fish. Once prey is caught, stung, and trapped in the tentacles, the jellyfish brings the prey back into it's mouth, which is underneath the round part of the jellyfish.
There is no one length to a jellyfish! But there is quite a range. I was on a junk (motor boat) the other day and I came across three jellyfish; One about 30cm long, one about 15cm long and one about 7cm long. The biggest jellyfish is bigger that the average man and the smallest is about the size of your pinkies finger nail!
Collective nouns for jellyfish are: a bloom of jellyfish (When jellyfish are spawned from their polyps they form what is called a "bloom".) a brood of jellyfish a fluther of jellyfish a smack of jellyfish a smuck of jellyfish a smuth of jellyfish a stuck of jellyfish a swarm of jellyfish A fluther or a smuth of jellyfish. A group of jellyfish is called a smack of jellyfish.
Irakanji is the smallest yet highly venomous jellyfish found in Australia only. Their size is about one cubic centimeter which means it can slip through a jellyfish net net that protect people on the beaches of Australia from jellyfish.) Which make it highly dangerous, and what make it even more dangerous is that it has stingers on its bell (the head of a jellyfish.)
Depends on the jellyfish As in most groups of animals, there is huge variation in size of jellyfish. The largest jelles are over 7 feet in diameter and can be over 120 feet long, and weigh hundreds of pounds. Whereas other types of jellies are miniscule; barely larger than a babies fingernail, and weighing a few milligrams. And of course there are jellies of all sizes in between these.
Jellyfish weigh anywhere from a few milligrams to more than 200 kilograms (440 pounds). The weight of a jellyfish is about the same as the weight of the water that its body displaces and depends on the size of the animal. There are almost 3,000 known species of jellyfish with their sizes ranging from a few milliimeters to more than 2 meters in diameter, not including their tentacles.
