    Depending on the species, jellyfish eat both small animals and vegetation. They can eat small fish and crustaceans by trapping them in their tentacles, but also eat plankton (small plants) and zooplankton (more microscopic animals), just by sweeping them into their mouths as they float by.

    Here’s a picture of a jellyfish eating a fish:

    Most species jellyfish are carnivores. Their diet comprises of zooplankton, small fish and sometimes even other jellyfish. Larger species of jellyfish also eat shrimp and other large crustaceans.
