Name one adaptation jellyfish have to survive in their environment. (Answer in one word)?
Jellyfish have no brains or central nervous system to help them survive. They rely on their tentacles to sense and respond to changes in their environment. Their bodies are 95% water which helps them stay buoyant in water.
How Jellyfish Adapt to Survive
Camouflage: A type of adaptation where an organism changes its appearance to blend in with its environment. Toxic Venom: A type of adaptation that allows jellyfish to sting and protect themselves from predators. Tentacles: Jellyfish use their tentacles to capture their prey and also to help them move through the water.
Jellyfish have been around since before the dinosaurs, making them one of the oldest creatures on the planet. Some jellyfish are bioluminescent, meaning they can produce their own light. Jellyfish can shrink or grow depending on their environment, meaning they can change their size to adapt.
