Icy Jellyfish are a species of jellyfish endemic to the ice planet of Hoth.


Icy Jellyfish spend their lives buried in the snow drifts on the planet's surface or dwelling in underground cavern systems. They are defensive in nature and should a larger creature make them feel threatened they will leap into the air and hover there, possibly through a lighter-than-air gas system such as helium. They will not pursue their potential foe but instead will hold their ground.
