Is a comb jellyfish a jellyfish?
The English popular name jellyfish has been in use since 1796. It has traditionally also been applied to other animals sharing a superficial resemblance, for example ctenophores (members from another phylum of common, gelatinous and generally transparent or translucent, free-swimming planktonic carnivores now known as comb jellies) were included as "jellyfishes"

What are comb jelly adaptations?
Ctenophora - Comb Jellies There are over 100 species of comb jelly, and most are transparent planktonic predators. They swim feebly by beating rows of plates made from fused hair-like cilia (the 'combs') and catch their prey with dangling tentacles. •The tentacles usually have 'colloblasts' on them which help the tentacles stick to the animals they touch. (Colloblasts are single cells that give off a gluey substance when touched.) •One type of comb jelly feeds on true jellyfish and is able to use the stinging cells (cnidocytes) on its tentacles, in much the same way as some of the sea slugs.

What was the first animal?
The first animal was an Axolotl; it's a kind of amphibian that lives in water and has gills like a fish. Recently, thanks to new scientific measures, scientists have discovered the first ever living animal to exist was an ocean-drifting comb jelly. In other words, a creature in the form of protoplasm. Before you get confused, the comb jelly is not a jellyfish, but it does have similarities to a jellyfish. Previously, it was thought that sponges were the first animal to exist, but we now know that isn't true. Evolution evidence found that comb jellies were here first and that sponges de-evolved from a form of jelly-fied animal. And yes, you read the word "de-evolved", not "evolved". Many examples of fossilised comb jelly creatures are hundreds of years older than fossils of sponges. Further indicating that the jelly appeared first. umm... dinosaurs?
