Why jellyfish?

Asked by Pam_I_Am (46points) August 17th, 2008

I read that a fluther is a group of jellyfish, but was there a reason to choose jellyfish? As opposed to orangutans or mealworms or chickadees?

why not jelly fish?

I don’t know if this was intentional on the part of the Founders, but I find it especially significant that Siphonophores (the group jellies belong to) are colonial animals. Each jelly is a colony of specialized zooids—integral animal-like organisms—all doing their bit to make the whole critter work (more here)

Fitting metaphor, don’t you think?
