Did you know?

Did you know that jellyfish have been around for about 650 million years – long before the dinosaurs? They can be found in every ocean of the world, and consist of approximately 95% water. They may seem harmless, but despite the fact, that they have no brains, hearts or bones, they can be extremely venomous. An adult jellyfish is called a “medusa”, named after the Greek mythological monster Medusa who had snakes for hair. The deadliest sea creature in the ocean, is the box jellyfish. A single box jellyfish holds enough venom to kill 60 people, and believe it or not – each year, jellyfish kill more people than sharks do!! Of course not all jellyfish are deadly, but it’s quite remarkable that, in theory, you ought to be more afraid of this transparent creature than of a shark!
