Jellyfish paralyze prey using neurotoxins in their tentacles, but the turtle does not seem to be affected. It closes its eyes and uses its flipper as a shield from the jellyfish’s stinging tentacles.

Green sea turtles are predominately herbivorous, but juveniles have been known to feed on jellyfish.
