How do you perform a jelly fish float in swimming?

The jellyfish float is also known as the survival float. The survival float is used to conserve energy when you are in trouble in the water, or waiting to be rescued. 1. Take a deep breath

2. Put your face in the water and exhale, let your arms and legs hang freely and rest in this position for a few seconds.*

3. To take another breath, slowly lift the arms to about shoulder height and move the arms forward. Separate the legs, moving one leg forward and the other back.

4. Gently press down with the arms while bringing the legs together. This movement lifts the mouth out of the water and now you can take another breath.

5. Return to the resting position and repeat the steps to continue breathing and resting. *It is important to conserve energy, so kicking your legs and moving your arms in a swimming fashion is not part of this survival technique. Try to keep your legs close together and touching each other if the water is cold. This will help keep you warm. (see also, Help position in swimming).

What does a jellyfish look like?

Jellyfish can look like clear plastic, with a shape like a mushroom or umbrella.

The body of a jellyfish is shaped like a bell or umbrella, with a clear, jellylike material filling most of the space between the upper and lower surfaces. A mouth is located in the center of the undersurface and tentacles dangle from the bell margin. Many jellyfish are colored, with pink or orange internal structures visible through the colorless or delicately tinted bell, and all are exquisitely designed; they are among the most beautiful of animal types.

What is the jelly like stuff inside the bone?

marrow ------------------------------------------------------------ this stuff is called marrow. The yellow marrow stores fat and releases it when it is needed else where. But the red marrow is tissue that make red and white blood and white blood cells in big amounts. Your body produces at least 5,000 white and red blood cells every day. Your bone is like a microscopic honey comb with tons of spaces for blood cells and nerves to get. ~Zizsuki

How do jellyfish move?

* They are passively transported by the water currents. * They can swim with rhythmical contractions of the bell (muscles) that propel it with the force of the water pushed from inside the bell, sort of like jet propelling does with air jets, the action creates an equal and opposite reaction.
it floats and drifts with the current
jelly fish moves its body to move in waterA jellyfish opens up its umbrella-like body wider than usual, and then shrinks it back to size. The water that was inside the umbrella-like body structure was squeezed out when the body structure shrank to normal size, so the aqua jet propelled the jellyfish a few feet. That is how a jellyfish moves.

What is the difference between a jellyfish and starfish?

Jellyfish are cnidaria coming from the greek "cnidos" meaning nettle. Sea stars are NOT crustaceans as the previous individual wrote, but are in fact echinoderms meaning spiny skin. There are many differences between these two phyla. For example, jellyfish are mostly pelagic whereas sea stars are bethic sticking to substrate. Jellyfish move by squeezing their bodies (bell) and forcing water out the bottom. However, they are subject to currents and winds. Sea stars in contrast move via many tiny tube feet on the oral surface (bottom of this animal). These are only a few examples.
