"Box jellyfish (Cubozoans) are remarkable creatures. Growing to up to 3m (10 ft) in length and weighing up to 2kg (4lbs) they can live for up to one year. They are found in the warm waters of Northern Australia and the Indo-Pacific. However, what initially appears to be quite a simple animal, turns out to be a fascinating and highly complex organism."
