Jelly fish are kind of interesting and this one is no exception. They eat fish, grom up to 65 mm and can reproduce either sexually or asexually. Couldn't find any interesting info about their evolution. Although they are Cambrian and Post-Cambrian in origin. They are related to sea anemones, corals and sea pens.
