A Brilliant Escape

Find out how a jellyfish makes a truly brilliant escape on today’s Creation Moments Minute!

It’s always as dark as night 2,000 feet beneath the ocean’s surface. Some creatures try to hide in the darkness.

But perhaps the most creative escape artist is a species of jellyfish. When a predator comes close, the jellyfish turns off the lights in its bell-shaped body and tentacles. It then scoots away as fast as it can. If the predator wasn’t fooled, the jellyfish turns all the lights back on. And when the attacker is very close, the jellyfish turns off the light in its body and takes off, detaching its still-glowing tentacles.

According to evolution, jellyfish are among the most primitive multicelled animals. In this clever survival strategy, we see that they are neither simple nor primitive. They are a true credit to the Creator’s handiwork!
