  1. Wow, this is a great video! I’ll have to use it. Though I’m not sure what the function of some of the anatomical features. I’ll have to brush up on my biology. Here is a question from an 8th grade student. How large is the largest jellyfish? I saw a picture of a massive jellyfish in front of a human and I want to know if jellyfish can get that size.

    • Hey Ms. Swoch–

      Jellyfish have been reported to be as large as washing machines, and some jellies can be up to 100 feet long! But fortunately those big ones aren’t particularly dangerous to people.
