The jellysquid split from the filtersquid. Rather than filtering food, its tentacles have become longer and have grown stinging hair in which it can ensnare its prey. It mainly catches beakworms, but can really capture anything that gets too close. Once caught, it will put it up to the mouth between the tentacles and eat it. It can propel itself around with its jets too. To keep it afloat, it has developed hollow air sacs on the top of it, which keep it at the surface better. Its range is in the Glicker-Wright Reef and Sea.
