"They feed on prey including fish, fish larvae, cephalopods, chaetognaths, and leptocephalus (eel) larvae. Their tentacles have pigmented regions that resemble larval fish, small shrimp, and copepods to lure prey into their stinging net" (Hoover). Their tentacles tangle and stun their prey. After the prey is trapped, Physalia physalis contracts its tentacles to bring the prey into contact with polyps that secrete digestive enzymes to soften their catch (Hoover).
