Why do jellyfish sting people?
Usually the jellyfish stings a person when they accidentally get too close to it. The jellyfish sees them as a threat and tries to defend itself. They got no brain, so they can't even think what they are doing. Their sting is to protect themselves, and to stun food so they can eat it. They have no brain, so don't know a human from a goldfish. Humans just accidentally set off the jellyfishes' instinct to sting. Jellyfish will sting you if they feel threatened.
