Jellyfish have a polyp and a medusa.

A medusa looks like an umbrella and a polyp any idea!

polyp! The star coral is attached and is faceup

It is wrong as Medusa stage is dominent in Scyphozoa .

Polyp and medusa are two stages in life cycle of cnidarians , polyp is hydra like and medusa is jelly fish like .

The difference between a jellyfish and a coral is a polyp is a type of coral and a Medusa is a type of jellyfish. Polyp and Medusa are two basic forms of cnidarians

who or wat is polyp a polyp stays alive by staying in its vase shape dome then it will turn into a (Medusa) grone-up jellyfish :)

The jellyfish life cycle is; planula larva, polyp, budding polyp, ephyra, medusa

The life cycle of a jellyfish is planula - polyp - polyp budding - ephyra - medusa.

The polyp form of a sea anemone differs the medusa form of the adult jellyfish in certain ways. The primary way the medusa differs from the polyp is that the portion of the medusa that corresponds to the base of the polyp is stretched out to form an umbrella-like structure called the bell.

The two body forms of cnidarians are the polyp stage and medusa stage. A polyp is sedentary; an example is coral. A medusa can move; an example is a jellyfish.

In organisms that exhibit both forms, the polyp is the asexual stage and the Medusa the sexual stage. In such organisms the polyp, by budding, gives rise to Medusa, which either detach themselves and swim away or remain permanently attached to the polyp. The Medusa then produce new polyps by sexual reproduction. A Medusa produces eggs or sperm, which are usually shed into the water; when an egg is fertilized, it develops into a swimming larva, which eventually settles and grows into a polyp. In addition to this elaborate means of reproduction, the polyp can form new polyps by budding. In some groups of coelenterates either the polyp or the Medusa has become highly developed, with the reduction or complete loss of the other form. Where only the Medusa occurs, as in many jellyfish, the larva never settles, and grows directly into a Medusa. Where only the polyp exists, as in the hydra and the sea anemone, the organism has the ability to produce new polyps sexually, as well as by budding.

polyp---sea anenome, medusa---jellyfish Phlycabs In plain English a polyp is a cylinder with tentacles at the top. The Hydra looks like a tin can with slender arms coming from the top of its body. This body form does not move and the animals are trappers. The medusa is an umbrella shaped structure with tentacles hanging down from it. The jellyfish is an example. These animals move. During the reproductive stages of the jellyfish there is a time when they take on the polyp form. Then they bud off and become medusa. Nighthawk

a coral polyp is an animal with no back bone

medusa, the polyp is the sessile stage

The medusa, sea anemone, and polyp all have radial symmetry.

1.Larva 2.Polyp 3.Medusa

Hydras are sessile organisms, but sometimes move when hunting. They remain as organisms, throughout their lives. Many other members of the class Hydrozoa, however, change from a polyp to a medusa (adult form). ~Official Oyster;)

Cnidarians have 2 life stages: polyp and medusa stage... The polyp stage is sedentary and the medusa stage usually moves through jet propulsion wherein muscles squeeze water out of the cavity...

Mobility can be a major advantage where resources are involved. A stationary polyp can't leave an unfavourable location.
