Existe una especie de medusa que no es venenosa?

Se la conoce como medusa «huevo frito», pero su nombre científico es Cotylorhiza tuberculata.

Vive en el mediterráneo por lo que podemos encontrarla en Ibiza. Se alimenta de plancton, peces pequeños y otras especies de medusas. A todas sus presas las capturan empleando la misma técnica: inyectan las toxinas presentes en sus cnidocitos, lo que les permite atraparlas con mayor facilidad al quedar inmóviles.
Aunque hay que destacar que otros muchos tipos de peces son inmunes a su veneno, por lo que utilizan los tentáculos de esta medusa para pasar desapercibidos ante posibles depredadores o aprovecharse de lo que han cazado con anterioridad las propias medusas.

There is a species of jellyfish that is not poisonous?

It is known as the “fried egg” jellyfish, but its scientific name is Cotylorhiza tuberculata.
It lives in the Mediterranean, so it can be found in Ibiza. It feeds on plankton, small fish and other species of jellyfish. They capture all their prey using the same technique: they inject the toxins present in their cnidocytes, which allows them to catch them more easily as they remain immobile.
Although it should be noted that many other types of fish are immune to their venom, so they use the tentacles of this jellyfish to go unnoticed by potential predators or to take advantage of what the jellyfish themselves have previously hunted.
