      Inferior? Thats a very anthropromorphic term. Maybe the jellyfish think humans are inferior since we don’t have nifty microscopic neurotoxin tipped harpoon launchers. Maybe they think we’re inferior cause we don’t have pretty iridescent colors on our skins and we don’t have our own natural light source….

      Just picking on you. It is important to remember that inferiority and superiority are relative.

      Of course they are… But some real well-pais science dudes decided that we can call animals with no endoskeleton inferior… By the way, you can not use most inferior(even if i used it) since it comes from latin and is already a comparaison 🙄
      PS: we do have our own light source: the light bulb

      Jellyfish are indeed animals, but they are not single celled. And they do more than plants. Jellyfish can swim, and they hunt. Most jellyfish has stinger cells called Nematocysts, which they use to kill or stun small prey like fish larvae.
