Model Answer:

Introduction:
Aquatic animals are fascinating creatures that inhabit the world's oceans, seas, and rivers. There are numerous aquatic animals that have unique features that make them interesting to learn about. In this cue card, I would like to talk about an aquatic animal that I find particularly interesting, which is the jellyfish.

What animal it is:
Jellyfish are free-floating, umbrella-shaped creatures that belong to the phylum Cnidaria. They are found in all of the world's oceans and are known for their beautiful, translucent bodies and long, trailing tentacles.

What they look like:
Jellyfish come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but they are typically bell-shaped and can range in size from less than an inch to several feet in diameter. Their bodies are made up of a gelatinous substance called mesoglea, which is what gives them their translucent appearance. Their tentacles are used for feeding and defence and can be covered in thousands of tiny, stinging cells called nematocysts.

When you have seen them:
I have seen jellyfish in various aquariums and zoos. I have also had the opportunity to see them in their natural habitat while snorkelling in the ocean. Seeing them up close and personal is an unforgettable experience, as their ethereal appearance and graceful movements are truly mesmerizing.

Why you think this is an interesting aquatic animal: 
Jellyfish are interesting for many reasons. One reason is their unique body structure, which has remained largely unchanged for millions of years. They are also fascinating because of their ability to adapt to changing environments and survive in some of the most extreme conditions on earth. Additionally, jellyfish have inspired numerous scientific and technological advancements, from medical research to the development of new materials. I believe jellyfish are a remarkable example of the diversity and resilience of life in the world's oceans.
