Transcript of Portuguese Man O' War

http://animals.nationalgeographic.com/animals/invertebrates/portuguese-man-of-war/ Portuguese Man of War By: Parker Davis The Man of War is also called the Blue-Bottle because of the purple-blue color of their pneumatophores. The Man of War is made up of four separate phylops. It gets its name from the upper most phylop a gas filled bladder,or pneumatophore. Which sits above the water and it resembles an old warship set at full sail at sea. Their tentacles are covered in venom filled nematacysts that are used to paralyze and kill their prey. For humans their sting is excruciatingly painful but,it is rarely found deadly. You still want to watch out because even if one is dead and washes on shore it can still give out a painful sting.

To start off the creature that I'm doing is the Portuguese Man of War Jellyfish. To find out it isn't a jellyfish at all even though most people mistake it as one. It is called a Siphonophore an animal made up of a colony of organisms working together. Grocery List:

They are carnivores so they have a variety of food that they can have on their diet. Their length can get up to be 165 feet long. Their float is 12 inches long and 5 inches wide. The only fish that we know of that is immune to the Portuguese Man of War sting is the tiny Nomeus Gronovii fish. It lives among the tentacles and picks up snacks one time or another. Muscles in tentacles draw prey up to a phylop that contains gastrozooids or digestive organisms. A fourth phylop contians reproductive organisms. They are found in groups of 1000 or more, floating in the warm waters of the worlds oceans. They have no independant means of purpulsion and either drift on the currents or catch a wave with their pneumataphores.
