The about page at the Animal Review blog simply states "This site reviews animal species objectively". This is an understatement.
On their blog and in a soon to be released book, Jacob Lentz and Steve Nash evaluate members of the animal kingdom with a wry mix of fact and just plain silly. They even go so far as to give the animals a letter grade. Their current review subject, the jellyfish, recieved a C-, which is actually quite good, as Lentz and Nash point out, since jellyfish literally have no brains. At all.
Now, one probably wouldn’t be very afraid of a shark that didn’t have a brain. Or a snake without a brain. Or a bear. Indeed, it might be entirely hilarious if a brainless bear was trying to attack you. There’d surely be a website called watchthisbrainlessbear.com and it would be ‘dedicated to providing the most recent videos of brainless bears trying to do things.’ But yet we all intuitively sense that a jellyfish – even a brainless one – is a different matter altogether. And that intuition turns out to be completely correct.
