In theory, the jellyfish may die.
Biologists have found that the only immortal animal is the jellyfish Turritopsis nutricula, which she learned to rejuvenate.
Scientists have found that the only immortal animal is the jellyfish Turritopsis nutricula, living in tropical seas. The creature, which is only five millimeters, learned infinitely to rejuvenate itself.
When the jellyfish reaches maturity, she does not die after spawning, as all her relatives, and returned from the “adult” stage of development back in the “nursery”.
She sinks to the bottom, is covered with a chitinous “crust” and transforms into a polyp. Under a layer of this substance Medusa “updated” and reiterates its entire life cycle. Continue this process to infinity.
In theory, the jellyfish may die, but only if you fall into the teeth of some predator.
At the moment, scientists are studying the phenomenon of this animal, trying to see how possible the process of transformation of cells from one form to another.
