Sea Nettle

Animals Home > Fish
The Sea Nettle is a carnivorous species of Jellyfish. It likes to feed on small creatures such as minnows and worms.


Latin Name: Atlantic  
Distribution: Chrysaora quinquecirrha  
Like most other Jellyfish the Sea Nettle has the ability to 'sting' its foe by injected a toxin which is non-lethal to humans. The Sea Nettle uses these toxins to first immobilize or kill its prey before ingesting it. Some humans however are allergic to the sting of a Sea Nettle which in rare cases can cause death.
