Give scientific reason.
Our body irritates if it comes in contact with a jellyfish.
- The mouth of jellyfish is surrounded by tentacles.
- The tentacles possess cnidoblasts which are used for capturing prey or for defense.
- When our body comes in contact with the tentacles of jellyfish, these cnidoblasts penetrate our skin as a defensive action.
- Cnidoblast injects the toxin in our body and thus, our body irritates if it comes in contact with jellyfish.
