Midwater Jelly

Read the story and answer the questions to test your comprehension.

The midwater jellyfish is a jellyfish that lives in the deep sea. When the jellyfish is threatened, the tentacles glow blue and red. If a hunter gets too close, its tentacles drop off, just like lizard tails. It feeds by waiting for a fish or smaller jellyfish to swim into range. When prey is close, the midwater jelly springs on them and enjoys its lunch!
