Glitter Plush Jellyfish.  Choose from Pink, Purple, or Blue. Measures 8 inches wide. Ages 3 and up. Price is for one.

Jellyfish are a group of gelatinous free-swimming animals with a distinct umbrella-shaped bell with trailing tentacles. What is distinct about this species is that it can pulsate that bell as a form of locomotion as well as a means of gathering food. As the jellyfish uses its bell to propel forward, small prey are caught and paralyzed by toxins in the tentacles. Jellyfish are carnivorous, feeding on plankton, crustaceans, fish eggs, small fish and other jellyfish. Jellyfish can range in size from about one millimeter to 2 millimeters in diameter.
