Illustrated Guide to Gelatinous Animal Body Parts

These illustrations should help to give you a better understanding of the major body parts for each of the gelatinous groups in the JelliesZone.  Species within a group (such as the heteropods) will of course vary with regard to their basic body plans.  Use these as general guides to see who has tentacles, bells, fins, wings, etc.  Click on each for a larger image.
