    What is THEIR purpose? (similar to mosquito thread)

    I mean, really they can't be a major food source, I think I would be more afraid of them than spiders.

    P.S - someone should start a thread on spiders, here's some inspiration



    Please watch full screen and high resolution!

    Take one species of anything out of the food chain and watch several ecosystems collapse.

    I just read that it has like 4 or 5 predators because of it's crazy self-defense abilities! Tuna, Shark, Sea-Turtle (lolreally?), Pacific Salmon, Swordfish and OTHER Jellyfish??!? (wtf)

    I bet even if we did remove them all, nothing would change.

    Jellyfish are awesome and they serve a purpose like any other creature does whether we know it or not. From a scientific stand point they may hold the key to curing certain diseases like cancer and naturally they serve the purpose of being potential cures to other poisonous creatures just like certain plants and snakes are used for for anti-venom.

    On a side note I think I posted something about spiders and insects awhile ago. It didn't last long but it was fun while it was up.

    The purpose of the jellyfish is to give people nightmares, as well as spiders; I'm deathly afraid of both, yeesh! I'm way to scared to even watch the spider video, lmao. icon_eek.gif

    A long time ago I had a wholesale pet busness and I would import critters from Peru including assorted tarantulas and yes Mahogony Centipedes - the centipedes were up to 12 inches long and 3 inches wide - highly toxic and could easy open a small rat with their mandibles.

    That being said I would have night mares for days beofre the shipment would come in - I hated unpakcing them because almost unfailingly something would have gotten out of a container so u had to be careful opening the crate. I had a black velvet tarantula get loose - it reared up on its hind legs exposed its fangs that were dripping venom at me - I screamed like a girl scout and stepped back and fell on one of the wood crates and got a nail in my ass and ended up having to get a tetanus shot that night .... lol

    The itty bitty ones, their purpose is to eat and breed and to kill you real good if you bump into one.

    And yeah, I know that box jellies are not true jellyfish. Fuck off, taxonomy nerds!

    Jellyfish are so beautiful. I could watch them for hours (if I had that much free time).
    I am not afraid of spiders. I'm wary of Black Widows and Brown Recluses, but otherwise what's the big deal?
    They capture annoying insects, they leave pretty spiderwebs, they're freaky and interesting.

    some spiders are pretty...however there is only one spider i cant deal with and thats brown recluses. brown house spiders scare me too, but the recluses send me over the edge...i think it has something to do with me being afraid of my skin havnt a permanent chunk missing from where the giant blister opens and festers when it bites you. I can even handle widows, but not recluses. nonononononononono.


    jellyfish however are beautiful, and the fantastic thing about them is that a jellyfish is in fact three different organisms. they are just attached and support one another

    Jellyfish is actually a common appetizer in Chinese restaurants, usually shredded and tossed with sesame oil. They don't taste too bad - sort of like rubbery noodles.
