Fact: Do Jelly Fish Have Bones ?

Do Jelly Fish Have Bones ?

Did you know that all Jellyfish no matter how large or small have no solid skeleton to support their body. Instead their shape is maintained by soft water filled inner tissues, over which its outer layers are stretched. Take a jelly fish out of water and its beautiful shape and size is visible as nothing more than a primitive lump of jelly. 

Despite this lack of bone structure don’t be confused into thinking these creatures are helpless. These beautiful animals have actually been in existance for over 650 million years (making them outdate the Dinosaurs) and have always been extremely effective as predators.

The Box Jellyfish for example is the deadliest sea animal in the world killing more humans than even sharks, and what about the Lions Mane jellyfish which has a diameter of over 8 metres and tentacles as long as 60 meters (that’s over half the length of a football field).
