What symmetry is a jellyfish?

Radially Symmetric Organisms
In fact, most members of the phylum to which jellyfish belong, Cnidaria, exhibit radial symmetry, including most hydras, corals and sea anemones. The only other animals with this type of symmetry are echinoderms -- a group that includes sea urchins, starfish, sand dollars and sea cucumbers.

Herein, what kind of symmetry does a jellyfish have?

This happens because, while humans have distinct right and left sides of their bodies, jellyfish have what's called radial symmetry. Like a daisy or a sea anemone, their bodies are pie-shaped, with distinct characteristics on the top and bottom rather than on any given side.

Also Know, can you have a jellyfish as a pet? The most commonly available species to be kept as a pet jellyfish are Moon Jellyfish (Aurelia Aurita). Moon Jellyfish typically live about 12 to 15 months, provided they are kept in an appropriate aquarium.
