Jellyfishes are the new exotic pet that everyone wants to bring home! They are gorgeous, no doubt. But having a pet jellyfish can be a tricky and expensive job.
Contrary to their name, jellyfishes are not fish at all. In fact, they are just pure jellies! These wonderful sea creatures don’t have a brain, blood, or bones. They are completely gelatinous and almost invisible to our eyes.
