STREET CREATURES QUIZ

What is Street Creatures?  This is the game I run on Twitter every Friday. I’ve
collected all the past quizzes here in one place so you can either relive them, or play
them for the first time.

How does it work?  Provided are four, seemingly unrelated clues, that are all
connected by a wild organism that can be found in a city. Look at the four clues,
do some research, and when you think you’ve figured it out, click on ‘Answer’
to reveal what connects the clues, and how they are connected.

Follow me on Twitter to play #StreetCreatures live every Friday at 9am PST.

Answer (Don't click until you've solved it)

Jellyfish

Nerve net:

Jellyfish don’t have brains, instead “they have a network of neurons (‘nerve net’) that allows jellies to sense their environments, such as changes in water chemistry indicating food or the touch of another animal.” Learn more.

Velum:

The difference between scyphozoans and hydrozoan jellyfish is that the former lacks a velum, which is “a muscular shelf, or velum, projecting inward from the margin of the bell.” Learn more.

Umbrella:

Many jellyfish have an umbrella shape which includes a exumbrella (upper surface) and a subumbrella (lower surface). Learn more about jellyfish anatomy.

Strobilation:

Jellyfish have several stages of reproduction – “The polyps clone themselves and bud, or strobilate, into another stage of jellyfish life, called ephyra. It is this form that grows into the adult medusa jellyfish.” Learn more.
