Our
Creatures

Floating away

Older than turtles. Older than sharks. At 500 million years old, jellyfish are some of the most ancient creatures in the oceans.

There are 350 different species in the jellyfish family – and they’re all pretty different.


The lion’s mane jellyfish is over two metres tall – which means they’d tower over you! The irukandji jellyfish is a centimeter small – and one of the world’s deadliest!
