Portuguese Man-O-War By: Tiller and Santos

The Man of war is extremely venemous and can kill animals with one touch.

It is sometimes mistaken as a jellyfish when it is seen.

The man of war is an invertebrate which means it has no backbone.

It is a carnivore which means it only eats meat and not plants.

They may look harmless but...

Facts

  1. The man-of-war is not a jellyfish. They’re a siphonophore, a single animal made of a colonial of organisms working together
  2. The tentacles with the stinging cells can get to be 165 feet (that’s longer than a blue whale!) long, but are more on average about 50 feet.
  3. The gas that the man-of-war is filled with is Argon. That’s number 18 on the atomic table.
  4. The man-of-war (or, man-o-war) is also sometimes called the bluebottle.

Land Ho

They can be found on land because, the wind will sometimes push them onto shore. If you ever find one on land don't touch it!!

How it eats/digest

Using its venomous tentacles, a man o' war traps and paralyzes its prey. It typically feeds on small marine organisms, such as fish and plankton, and has few predators of its own.

The man-o-war has been found to kill a whole colony fish at once.
