Pacific sea nettle

[Image: pacific-sea-nettle.jpg]

Size: Bell-1m, tenticles- 3.6-4.6m

Weight: No data

Life expectancy: 6 months

Location: The pacific sea nettle lives in the open waters of the pacific ocean, mostly the northeast

Taxonomy:
Class: Scphozoa
Order: Semaeostomeae
Family: Pelagiidae
Genus: Chrysaora
Species: Chrysaora fuscescens

Diet: This animal is carnivorous. It feeds on small fish and their eggs, salp, zooplankton, crustaceans, pelagic snails, and other jellyfish.

Anatomy: This jellyfish relies on its cnidocyst laden tentacles in order to catch prey. When prey touches these tentacles, it will sting them. After wards it then begins digestion and will bring its food to their mouth. They use their bells to move a propulsion.

Reproduction: This animal can reproduce sexually and asexually. The sexual reproduction is by the medusa stage while asexual reproduction is by the polyp stage while asexual reproduction is by the polyp stage. Females will catch sperm and bring it to the eggs in their mouths. Then the eggs will hatch and become a planula. This planula then releases polyps, which then leads to the asexual reproduction. The new clones will then grow into a big nettle.

Relationship with other animals: This animal is prey to marine birds and large fish.
