Jellyfish Epidermis

We just learned about the Jellyfish Bell.

Another part of the jellyfish is the Epidermis.

The epidermis is the skin on the outside of the bell.
Just like humans, jellyfish have skin, and their epidermis has a bunch of nerves in it called a "nerve net".

This nerve net helps them feel movement in the water and tell their body where to try and swim to get food.
