Jellyfish are normally known as lifeless creatures that float around the ocean aimlessly, but the Box Jellyfish is not of the sort. I choose the Box Jellyfish because of their unique traits and abilities. The three main traits the Box Jellyfish possess are that they have several eyes, can move around, and they possess a very powerful sting.
Box Jellyfish are unlike any other jellyfish, because the Box Jellyfish have eyes. In fact, they have 24 eyes. Of these eyes, the Box Jellyfish has four different types. These eyes help them move to avoid objects and locate food. Box Jellyfish are a unique species, not just because of their eyes but they also have the ability to move.
The thing that makes a Box Jellyfish very sophisticated is that they not only have eyes but also can move. The four eyes on top of their Gastro vascular Cavity is what locates the tree canopy to stay near it. Those eyes also locate food for them to eat. The Box Jellies’ other eyes are what allow the Jelly to navigate. These eyes respond to light, avoid obstacles, and control their rate of swimming. Box Jellyfish do not have a central nervous system so scientists are not quite sure how they process what they see. Another thing a Box Jellyfish possesses is a very powerful, and sometimes deadly, sting.
Box Jellyfish are unique not only because they can move, but they also have a destructive sting. The Box Jelly is known as “Sea Wasps”. They have received this nickname from their powerful sting. Their tentacles contain a toxic that attacks the heart, nervous system, and skin cells. The toxic in a Box’s tentacles is considered to be among the deadliest in the world. A full grown Box Jelly can have up to 15 tentacles with about 5,000 stinging cells in each tentacle.
In conclusion the Box Jellyfish are unlike any other jellyfish on the planet. They have eyes which allow them to see light and objects. Box Jellies also can maneuver to stay near their tree canopies and locate food for them to eat and survive. To top it all off Box Jellyfish have the most powerful sting of any other jellyfish in the oceans. So, all in all the Box Jellyfish is the most unique and original Jelly in the seven seas.
