Moon Jellyfish

About Moon Jellyfish

Like most jellyfish, this species pushes itself through the water by contracting its bell-shaped body.

These jellyfish are weak and are often washed up on beaches by the tide. The jellyfish attacks small fish using stinging tentacles that trail from the edge of its “bell.” It brings the paralyzed prey into its mouth using its larger tentacles. Its stings are painful but are not dangerous to humans.
