Jellyfish Jellyfish differ in size, they can be as big as a human or can be the size of a pinhead. Jellyfish don’t have brains. Only some Jellyfish have eyes. A group of Jellyfish is called a smack.
Stingray Stingrays do not have bones, instead their bodies are all cartilage. The Stingrays’ tail is armed for defense. A Stingray’s mouth is on the underside of its body. Stingrays eat mussels, crabs, shrimp, clams, and oysters. They crush these by using their strong jaw.
