A cnidarian is defined by the root of its name, cnida, which is Greek for stinging nettle. All cnidarians, therefore, have cnidocytes, which are the stinging, adhering, or entangling cells that allow them to eat, defend, or move. It is diploblastic (two layered) and generally they are radially symmetric. Cnidarians are also exclusively aquatic.

How do jellyfish get energy?

Some jellyfish consume plankton while others prey on small fish and other marine animals.

Either way the jellyfish extract nutrients from their food, including carbohydrates. These carbohydrates are then reacted with oxygen in a process called aerobic respiration, a process similar to combustion which is the basis of all animal metabolisms.

Can jellyfish lose their stinging cells?

Yes. After discharge, the stinging sac (nematocyst) is often pulled out of its cell (nematocyte). The cell (with or without the stinging sac) is then absorbed by the jellyfish. New stinging cells (nematoblasts) are continually being formed from stem cells, normally at a birthing site near the base of the tentacle. As these new cells form new stinging sacs, they travel down the tentacle and eventually take their place in the outer tissue of the tentacle in a precise pattern, which is often specific to their species.

What is a jellyfish's job in the ecosystem?

The job of the jellyfish is to help cleanse ocean water and regulate biodiversity. The way that they move and eat helps to filter waste out of the ocean. By pulsating, they fill their giant bells with water and digest things like agricultural waste, which makes the ocean cleaner. They also play a large role in regulating biodiversity. By eating copepods (which eat photoplankton and then excrete toxins into the water), fish eggs, and larvae jellyfish help regulate biodiversity. It is especially important that jellyfish do this because competition is more likely to dominate at lower levels of the food chain. It has also been found that fish who are not yet able to defend themselves will hide behind jellyfish tentacles as protection from competition.
