Table of Contents
What is the purpose of jellyfish?
They’re really a great source of food for turtles and other animals in the ocean. And because they can sting, they can be protectors to smaller fish as well in the water by stinging the bigger fish and keeping them away.
What is the lifespan of a jellyfish?
You’ll find throughout the readings that most jellyfish only live a span of a few months. Some might make it years, but it’s highly unlikely. It really depends on the species as well.
